Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan’s anticipated suspenseful drama series RATCHED will debut this week on Netflix.
Focused on the story of asylum nurse Mildred Ratched, the series stars Sarah Paulson as Mildred, Cynthia Nixon as Gwendolyn Briggs, Judy Davis as Nurse Betsy Bucket, Sharon Stone as Lenore Osgood, Jon Jon Briones as Dr. Richard Hanover and Finn Wittrock as Edmund Tolleson.
In the series, Mildred arrives in Northern California (in 1947), to seek employment at a leading psychiatric hospital where new and 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.
RATCHED was inspired by the iconic and unforgettable character of Nurse Ratched in One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest and was created by Evan Romansky.
