A&E Sets March 18th Premiere Date for BATES MOTEL; New HBO Series PARADE’S END and FAMILY TREE Get Premiere Dates Too

     January 4, 2013


The TCA’s got underway today (look for our extensive television coverage soon), and as part of the event, premiere dates for a few upcoming series were announced.  First up, A&E confirmed that the Psycho prequel show Bates Motel will premiere on Monday, March 18th.  The series, from Lost co-showrunner Carlton Cuse and Friday Night Lights’ Kerry Ehrin, serves as a prequel to the Alfred Hitchcock classic and centers on the relationship between a young Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his mother (Vera Farmiga).

Additionally, HBO announced that the five-part WWI-era miniseries Parade’s End will debut on February 26th.  The adaptation of Madox Ford’s novel series stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Rebecca Hall, and Adelaide Clemens and centers on an English aristocrat trying to adjust to the social upheaval around him.  And finally, the much-anticipated new HBO comedy series from Christopher Guest, Family Tree, will premiere this coming spring.  All in all, there’s plenty of exciting TV to look forward to in the coming year.
