Ryan Murphy has assembled a starry cast—replete with theatre veterans—for his upcoming Netflix series Ratched. As previously reported, Sarah Paulson is set to star as a younger version of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest villain Nurse Ratched.

Joining her will be recent Tony winner and New York gubernatorial primary candidate Cynthia Nixon, Tony winner Harriet Harris, Tony winner Amanda Plummer, Oscar nominees Sharon Stone and Judy Davis, and Broadway alums Finn Wittrock, Jon Jon Briones, Charlie Carver, Hunter Parrish, and Corey Stoll.

Murphy took to Instagram to reveal the lineup “a true murderers’ row of talent”—adding that shooting will begin in a couple weeks. The series received a two-season order from the streaming service in September 2017. He is also at work on the Netflix series The Politician, starring Tony winners Ben Platt and Jessica Lange.
