A television series designed to act as prequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s classic “Psycho” has just been announced as joining the ranks of the A&E network, according to Hollywood Reporter.
The series is currently in very early stages of development, with no word yet on who is being courted to play serial-killing motel owner Norman Bates, who was originally played by Anthony Perkins in the 1960 film.
“Bates Motel” would delve into Bates’ back story, offering an understanding of how his psyche developed and how is mother, Norma and her lover damaged him to the point where he transformed into a murderous monster.
This project would not be the first attempt at a “Psycho” spinoff or prequel, with NBC airing a 90-minute telemovie in 1987 also titled “Bates Motel”.
