Psycho is to receive a television prequel series titled Bates Motel, it has been reported.

A&E is developing the project based on a screenplay from Anthony Cipriano, according to The Live Feed.

The proposed show will take place before the events of Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 classic, shedding light on a young Norman Bates's relationship with his mother and the events that moulded him into a serial killer.

NBC commissioned a similar spinoff in 1987, a TV movie bearing the same title. Psycho IV: The Beginning, a television movie released in 1990, also covered similar ground.

A&E also announced that it has acquired the rights to remake Danish show Those Who Kill, based on the bestselling crime thriller by Elsebeth Egholm.

Potential air dates for the projects are yet to be announced.
