“Cuckoo’s Nest” To Become TV Series

First Netflix stole Shonda Rhimes from ABC Studios, and now the streaming giant has scored a high-profile drama series from another of TV’s most prolific producers. “Ratched,” a prequel series from executive producer Ryan Murphy revolving around the character of Nurse Ratched from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, has landed at Netflix with a two-season, 18-episode order. The project, with Emmy winner Sarah Paulson (Murphy’s muse) set to take on the role of Nurse Ratched, landed at Netflix following a competitive bidding process with Apple and Hulu also among the suitors.
