KUSA - Alfred Hitchcock's film "Psycho" is coming back to the spotlight as a TV show.
"Bates Motel" is a prequel series to the film about Norman Bates, a now famous serial killer.
Executive producers of the show include Carlton Cuse from "Lost" and Kerry Ehrin from "Friday Night Lights." They promise a chilling and dramatic story about what came before the movie. It will look at the strange bond between Norman and his mother, Norma Bates.
Actor Freddie Highmore plays Norman. He spoke with KUSA on Monday.
"I see the show being more driven by a psychological thrill. It's a psychological thriller in the sense that the show is driven by trying to find out how Norman Bates became psycho. His inner-psyche and his intimate relationship with his mother and how all that combines to make him the person that he becomes," Highmore said.
The new show airs on A&E at 9 p.m. on Monday.
