Paulson previously discussed Ratched in an interview with Vanity Fair and revealed that it’ll give a clear understanding of the nurse’s backstory, from her childhood to her relationships and sexuality. “By the time you get to the end of the first season, you will not wonder how and why Mildred became the way she did,” she said.
Paulson (who’s also credited as a producer on the show) is joined by Cynthia Nixon, Judy Davis, Sharon Stone, Jon Jon Briones, Finn Wittrock, Charlie Carver, Alice Englert, Amanda Plummer, Corey Stoll, Sophie Okonedo and Vincent D’Onofrio (and apparently a monkey).
And since Murphy previously signed a multi-year deal with Netflix, you can expect to see a lot of him on the streaming service. In addition to Ratched, The Politician and Hollywood, he’s also working on The Boys in the Band, The Prom and an untitled project based on Tiger King.
You had us at Sarah Paulson.
