A cold, heartless tyrant, 'Nurse Ratched' has become the stereotype of the nurse as a battleaxe.
Netflix has given the series a two-season with eighteen episodes.
Writer Evan Romansky will write and create the series.
The series is about a mental institution, overseen by the psychopathic 'Nurse Ratched,' who takes terrible advantage of her power over all of the hospital's patients, subjecting them to various horrifying treatments and keeping order in the hospital through fear.
This is not the first time the pair would be working together; Paulson is currently starring in Murphy's anthology horror series 'American Horror Story.'
The production of the series is slated to begin sometime in mid-2018. (ANI)
