Ratched is an American psychological thriller streaming television series starring Sarah Paulson in the titular role of Nurse Mildred Ratched, created by Evan Romansky and developed by Ryan Murphy. It depicts Mildred Ratched's life prior to the events depicted in Milo Forman's 1975 film One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (based on Ken Kesey's 1962 novel of the same name), albeit in a different state (California as opposed to Oregon). Ratched was picked up for a two-season order on Netflix, with the first season premiering on September 18, 2020.

Ratched is a tense drama series that chronicles the storey of Mildred Ratched, an asylum nurse. Mildred arrives in Northern California in 1947, looking for work at a prestigious mental facility where new and unnerving studies on the human mind have begun. Mildred presents herself as the ideal nurse on a covert mission, but the wheels are always turning, and as she begins to infiltrate the mental health care system and those who work within it, Mildred's stylish exterior belies a growing darkness that has long been smouldering within, revealing that true monsters are made, not born.
Was the Making Smooth?
Netflix announced on September 6, 2017 that the production has received a two-season series order. Netflix is said to have won a bidding war against Hulu and Apple, who were also interested in working on the project. Evan Romansky, who also authored the pilot, conceived the series.
After receiving his script, television producer Ryan Murphy spent a year securing the Nurse Ratched character, as well as the participation of the Saul Zaentz estate and Michael Douglas, who owned the screen rights to One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest.
Murphy, along with Douglas, Aleen Keshishian, Margaret Riley, and Jacob Epstein, directed and executive produced the pilot. Fox 21 Television Studios, The Saul Zaentz Company, and Ryan Murphy Productions were among the production companies engaged in the series. The series' score was written by Mac Quayle, a frequent collaborator with Murphy.
Sarah Paulson has been cast in the lead role of Nurse Ratched, which was disclosed alongside the first series order announcement. It was announced on December 11, 2018, that Finn Wittrock and Jon Jon Briones had joined the cast of the show. Charlie Carver, Judy Davis, Harriet Harris, Cynthia Nixon, Hunter Parrish, Amanda Plummer, Corey Stoll, and Sharon Stone were cast in the series on January 14, 2019.
Rosanna Arquette, Vincent D'Onofrio, Don Cheadle, Alice Englert, Annie Starke, and Stan Van Winkle were all cast in recurring parts in February 2019. Sophie Okonedo, Liz Femi, and Brandon Flynn were cast in recurring roles on July 29, 2020, according to reports. The first season was shot in Los Angeles and at 20th Century Fox Studios in early 2019. The historic Adamson House in Malibu was one of the filming locations.
