Over the past few weeks A&E has been in promotional overdrive for its new PSYCHO-based series BATES MOTEL, delivering some killer posters, several promos, and a cool little teaser featuring a young Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and Mother (Vera Farmiga) showing some motherly love. Today we have a brand new promo clip filled with images from the upcoming series and giving us a sense of how the series is 'Starting Over'.
In BATES MOTEL, following the tragic death of her husband, Norma Bates buys a motel on the outskirts of the idyllic coastal town of White Pine Bay, seeking a fresh start. As Norma and Norman get ensconced in their new home, they discover this town isn’t quite what it seems, and the locals aren’t so quick to let them in on their secrets. But the Bates’ are done being pushed around and will do whatever it takes to survive – and will do whatever it takes to protect their own secrets.
The series stars Academy Award nominee Vera Farmiga (“Up in the Air,” “The Departed”), Freddie Highmore (“Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “Finding Neverland”), Max Thieriot (“Disconnect”), Olivia Cooke (“Blackout”) and Nicola Peltz (“The Last Airbender”). Season one also co-stars Nestor Carbonell (“Lost,” “The Dark Knight Rises”) and Mike Vogel (“Pan Am”).
BATES MOTEL debuts on Monday, March 18 at 10 PM ET/PT.
