WATCH THE FINAL TRAILER FOR 'RATCHED'. WITNESS THE ORIGIN STORY IF THE INFAMOUS NURSE.
Netflix has released the final trailer for co-creator Ryan Murphy’s upcoming series 'Ratched', starring Golden Globe winner Sarah Paulson (American Crime Story) in the origin story of one of the most iconic — and chilling — characters, Nurse Ratched.
The series is a prequel to 1975’s "One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest", with Paulson playing a younger version of the villainous Nurse Ratched. The series will start in 1947, and chronicle her rise from lowly nurse to one of the most loathsome screen villains of all time.
The 1975 film "One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest" won the Oscar for Best Picture and was based on Ken Kesey’s 1962 novel of the same name. Nurse Ratched was played in the movie by Louise Fletcher, who won an Oscar for Best Actress. The film also won awards for Best Director (Milos Forman), Best Actor (Jack Nicholson) and Best Adapted Screenplay (Lawrence Hauben and Bo Goldman).
'Ratched' is set to premiere on Netflix on September 18.
