‘Five Days at Memorial’ Post-Hurricane Katrina Hospital Series Teaser
“There is nothing else to do for them, except to make them comfortable.” Apple TV has revealed the first teaser trailer for a new streaming series titled Five Days at Memorial, another hospital series but with a specific, chilling story to tell this time. What would you do if everything failed? Based on actual events from Hurricane Katrina, Five Days at Memorial tells the story of the many exhausted caregivers at a New Orleans hospital who were forced to make heart-wrenching decisions amidst the storm’s aftermath. It’s based on the book of the same name by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Sheri Fink. Doctors and nurses at the intensive care unit of a New Orleans’ hospital struggle with treating many patients during Hurricane Katrina when the facility is without power for 5 days. This stars Vera Farmiga, Cherry Jones, Robert Pine, Cornelius Smith Jr., Julie Ann Emery, and Adepero Oduye. The teaser provides a look at some of the struggles they were dealing with, including limited food & water, and no extra supplies. Looks like a very tough watch.
