Who knew a prequel show starring a nurse from a ’70s film classic would be a hit in 2020? Well, someone did, and they named that series Ratched.
Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Sarah Paulson (Glass) is Mildred Ratched, the bitter and jaded nurse from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, in this origin series that follows her infamous rise within the mental health care system of 1947.
The show comes from six-time Emmy-winning super-producer Ryan Murphy, who’s perhaps best known for Glee and the recent Hollywood. Reuniting with Paulson after American Crime Story, Ratched has made itself known to those sucked in by its lavish production and unflinching performances.
