That attention to diverse themes continues with his exclusive creative deal with Netflix, which has already resulted in currently-in-production political comedy The Politician with Jessica Lange; and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest prequel drama Ratched, starring Sarah Paulson (Glass) in the (in)famous title role – but both were also under Murphy’s deal with 20th Century Fox Television
