About Bates Motel

Bates Motel is an American drama television series developed for television by Carlton Cuse, Kerry Ehrin and Anthony Cipriano, produced by Universal Television for A&E. The series, being a modern, 21st century reboot to the 1960 film Psycho, depicts the life of Norman Bates and his mother Norma in a new fictional town ('White Pine Bay, Oregon,' as opposed to the film's 'Fairvale, California'). The series begins after the death of Norma's husband, when she purchases a motel located in a coastal Oregon town so she and Norman can start a new life.
