“Five Days at Memorial” Teaser Unspools the True-Life Hurricane Katrina Mystery

With yet another highly-intriguing new limited Apple TV+ series on the Horizon, the streaming platform has today revealed the first teaser for the provocative and gripping drama, “Five Days at Memorial“.

Inspired by actual events and adapted from Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Sheri Fink’s 2013 book, “Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital”, the series chronicles the impact of Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath on a local hospital. When the floodwaters rose, the power failed, and heat soared, exhausted caregivers at a New Orleans hospital were forced to make decisions that would follow them for years to come.

The culmination of six years of reporting, Fink’s book unspools the mystery of what happened in those days, bringing the reader into a hospital fighting for its life and into a conversation about the most terrifying form of health care rationing.

Exec-produced and written by Carlton Cuse (“Jack Ryan,” “Lost”) and John Ridley (“The Other History of the DC Universe,” “Let It Fall: Los Angeles 1982-1992”), with Cuse directing, “Five Days at Memorial” stars Vera Farmiga (“Up in the Air,” “The Conjuring”), Robert Pine (“CHiPs”), Cherry Jones (“Transparent”, “Succession”), Julie Ann Emery (“Better Call Saul,” “Preacher”), Cornelius Smith Jr. (“Scandal,” “Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker”), Adepero Oduye (“The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,””Pariah”), Molly Hager (“Happyish,” “It’s Kind of a Funny Story”), Michael Gaston (“Blindspot,” “The Leftovers”) and W. Earl Brown (“Deadwood,” “Preacher”).

“Five Days at Memorial,” is a limited eight-episode series, debuting globally on Friday, August 12 with the first three episodes, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday through September 16.
