Oct. 16 (UPI) -- Netflix announced on Friday that original series Ratched, starring Sarah Paulson, was the streaming service's biggest original Season 1 of the year.
"In its first 28 days, 48 million members have booked an appointment with Nurse Ratched, making it our biggest original Season 1 of the year," Netflix said on Twitter alongside a photo of Paulson in character.
Ratched is based on the novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey that was adapted into a 1975 film starring Louise Fletcher as Nurse Ratched. Fletcher had lobotomized Jack Nicholson in the film.
Nurse Ratched develops her own type of dark nursing practices while working at a psychiatric hospital after serving in World War II in the series.
