A&E Checks Into Bates Motel for 2013

July 7, 2012 by Marc Berman in Highlights with 0 Comments

In lieu of producing a pilot episode, A&E Network is going directly to series for “Bates Motel.” It has ordered 10 episodes, as pre-production and casting have already begun.

Bates Motel

“Bates Motel”, developed by executive producers Carlton Cuse (“Lost”) and Kerry Ehrin (“Friday Night Lights” and “Parenthood”), is inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 horror classic film, “Psycho.” The series will explore the early years of serial killer Norman Bates, especially with his relationship with Norma Bates, his mother.
