by at . Comments

A&E has announced an opening for its Psycho prequel, announcing at today's Television Critics Association press tour that Bates Motel will premiere on Monday, March 18 at 10/9c.

From the creative minds of Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Kerry Ehrin (Friday Night Lights), this Psycho prequel is receiving a great deal of buzz.

It centers on Vera Farmiga as Norma Bates and explores her unusual relationship with teenage son Norman (Freddie Highmore), as the mother/son move into the coastal town of White Pine Bay and open the titular place of business.

"Carlton and Kerry crafted a fascinating backstory for Norman and Norma Bates that has been brought to life by this incredible cast," says Bob DeBitetto, President and GM of A&E Network and Bio Channel. "It’s thought provoking television at its finest and we’re thrilled to bring it to the A&E family."
