MANILA, Philippines — Witness the origin of one the world’s most iconic characters brought to life by the creator of "American Horror Story," Ryan Murphy. The eight-episode series premieres on Netflix Friday, September 18. 

From Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan, "Ratched" is a suspenseful drama series that tells the origin story of asylum nurse Mildred Ratched.

 

 

In 1947, Mildred arrives in Northern California 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.
