Created by Evan Romansky with Ryan Murphy of American Horror Story as executive producer, Paulson’s character in "Ratched" portrays the iconic Nurse Ratched and the main villainess of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, first featured in Ken Kesey's 1962 novel as well as the 1975 film of the same title. Nurse Ratched is a cold, heartless tyrant, and her character eventually became the stereotype of a battleaxe nurse. Now, more than 40 years later, Paulson brings the character back to life which was originally immortalised by actress, Louise Fletcher in the original film.
The story follows Mildred as she arrives in Northern California in 1947 to look for work at a local psychiatric hospital where doctors have begun.unsettling experiments have begun on the human mind. On a clandestine mission, Mildred presents herself as the perfect image of what a dedicated nurse should be, but the wheels are always turning and as she begins to infiltrate the mental health care system and those within it, Mildred’s stylish exterior belies a growing darkness that has long been smoldering within, revealing that true monsters are made, not born.
The trailer definitely has the look and feel of an ACH anthology off-spin.
Executive producers include Murphy, Ian Brennan, Paulson, Alexis Martin Woodall, Aleen Keshishian, Jacob Epstein, Jennifer Salt, Margaret Riley, Michael Douglas, Robert Mitas and Tim Minear.
