Bates Motel

Ready for first-look video from A&E’s Bates Motel?

Below are two super-short teaser clips giving viewers a sense of the TV prequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film Psycho. The upcoming horror series stars Freddie Highmore (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) as young Norman and Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air) as his mother. A&E plans to run the ads during the midseason finale of AMC’s The Walking Dead on Sunday. Check out (check in?) the clips below (one plays right after the other). Bates Motel premieres on A&E this spring.
