"Norman has been through a lot. He's a sensitive boy."

A&E's just released the video below featuring clips and behind-the-scenes footage from its highly anticipated new series "Bates Motel." A prequel to "Psycho" that shifts the story to the present day, the drama stars Freddie Highmore as a young Norman Bates and Vera Farmiga as his darling mother Norma.

"Bates Motel," which is being executive produced by Carlton Cuse of "Lost," represents a move back toward smart scripted fare for a network that's become better known, in recent years for reality shows like "Dog the Bounty Hunter," "Intervention" and "Storage Wars." The 10-episode series, which has nothing to do with the 1987 TV movie/failed pilot of the same name starring Bud Cort, also features Max Thieriot, Nestor Carbonell and Olivia Cooke and is set for a 2013 release.
