Er, had you heard about this one? A TV series prequel for Psycho set in the modern day...

"It's all gonna be good Norman"

The jury's out on that, we'd say.

Starting in the US on the 18th of March is A&E's Psycho prequel series, Bates Motel, which follows the arrival of Norman Bates and his mother in White Pine Bay, where they purchase the titular hostelry made famous in Hitchcock's 1960 adaptation. Though set in the early life of Robert Bloch's characters, the show has been updated to the modern era.

UK actor Freddie Highmore (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) is playing Norman Bates, with Source Code's Vera Farmiga as his mother. The series comes from the producers of Lost and Friday Night Lights. Take a look at the first full trailer below.
