'Lost's Carlton Cuse To Bring 'Psycho' Prequel 'Bates Motel' To A&E

A&E has ordered ten episodes of 'Bates Motel' from 'Lost' executive producer Carlton Cuse.

The cable network has sent the 'Psycho'-inspired series straight to series, which means it will not have to go through a traditional pilot stage that normally decides the fate of a series.

The drama will explore the formative years of 'Psycho's Norman Bates and the past that helped mould the disturbed owner and motel manager into a killer.

"We are proud to be partnering with Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin on their thrilling reinvention of one of the most compelling characters in cinematic history," says A&E. "It's a provocative project from two of the best storytellers in the business, and we're looking forward to getting started."

Cuse's partner on 'Lost', Damon Lindelof, recently announced he was adapting Tom Perrotta's 'The Leftovers' for HBO.

'Bates Motel' is currently aiming for a 2013 premiere on A&E. The same year we'll see Anthony Hopkins play director Alfred Hitchcock for a film about the Making of Psycho, starring Scarlett Johansson (photosScarlett Johansson photos), Jessica Biel (photosJessica Biel photos) and Helen Mirren.
