Bates Motel (A&E) is a new TV series produced by Carlton Cuse (Lost) and it's supposed to be something like a prequel to Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (Ed Gein again, huh?). The series features Freddie Highmore (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Spiderwick Chronicles) as Norman Bates and Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air) as Norma Bates. Bates Motel premieres on the 18th of March. 

Orphan Black (BBC America) is scheduled to premiere on the 30th of March. It's about an orphan named Sarah (played by Tatiana Maslany) who happens to witness the suicide of her exact double, which later turns out to be her (?) clone. She assumes the dead girl's identity to get her money, but inadvertently becomes involved in some sort of deadly conspiracy. 

Da Vinci's Demons (Starz) is a historical fantasy about early life of Da Vinci created by David S. Goyer. The first episode air on the 12th April.

Hemlock Grove (based on the novel of the same title) is another creation of Netflix, a thriller this time. Like with House of Cards, all the episodes are released at once (April 19). Famke Janssen, Bill SkarsgÄrd and Landon Liboiron are featured in this show.
