Sneak Peek: A&E's BATES MOTEL

A&E's highly anticipated new show BATES MOTEL has Hitchcock fans all abuzz.  Every since it was announced the network would be creating the show around iconic director Alfred Hitchcock's equally iconic film PSYCHO, excitement has been building for the new show.

Take a first look at BATES MOTEL.  Deets below.

Ready for your first good look at A&E's upcoming series 'Bates Motel'?Ever since the project was announced, it's been met with much scrutiny and doubt, especially among die-hard Psycho fans and Hitchcock enthusiasts.

But when you've got one of the producers of 'Lost' (Carlton Cuse) and one of the writers of 'Friday Night Lights' (Kerry Ehrin), not to mention the inspired casting of Vera Farmiga (as Mother) and Freddie Highmore (as Norman Bates), well then you've got us intrigued.

The teasers we got a few weeks back were interesting, but now this trailer/making-of featurette really gives us a better look at what to expect from this modern interpretation inspired by 'Psycho'. And it's looking good so far!

With the success of such shows as American Horror Story and The Walking Dead, I think it's time that Norman Bates got his due. What do you guys think?
