The first promo art for A&E's upcoming Bates Motel is pretty much what you would expect from a project titled Bates Motel. That's not to say it's bad; it's just pretty much what you would expect. Meant as a loose prequel to Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho, Vera Farmiga (The Orphan) stars as Norma Bates, mother of Norman, in the show that focuses on Norman's formative high school years, and how he became the eponymous psycho. The show bows in 2013; hopefully since they are advertising it already, we won't have to wait until the now-traditional Halloween release window that all off-network spook shows seem to be fond of.
