Bates MotelA&E hopes to have the next big cable hit with the scripted series Bates Motel, which premieres on March 18

The show is set in the present day — and tells the story of Norma (Vera Farmiga) and her high-school-aged son Norman (Freddie Highmore) Bates. The pair just moved to a seaside town to start over, and have bought a motel.  As you might expect, things get complicated from there.
