The first season of A&E’s drama series Bates Motel will receive its UK premiere on Universal Channel on Thursday September 12th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Created by Carlton Cuse, Bates Motel was inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho and picks up as Norma Bates, following the tragic death of her husband, buys a motel on the outskirts of the idyllic coastal town of White Pine Bay, seeking a fresh start. As Norma and Norman get ensconced in their new home, they discover this town isn’t quite what it seems, and the locals aren’t so quick to let them in on their secrets. But the Bates’ are done being pushed around and will do whatever it takes to survive – and will do whatever it takes to protect their own secrets. Bates Motel is produced by Universal Television and stars Freddie Highmore, Vera Farmiga, Max Thieriot, Nicola Peltz and Olivia Cooke.
