First three episodes of ‘Five Days at Memorial’ coming to Apple TV+ on August 12

The drama series is adapted from a book of the same name written by Pulitzer Prize winner Sheri Fink. It shows the impact of Hurricane Katrina and the aftermath of the natural disaster on a local hospital. From Apple:

When the floodwaters rose, 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 first trailer for the series gives viewers a glimpse into the destruction caused by the Hurricane. Forty-five dead bodies are found in a local hospital and the Attorney General subsequently opens an investigation to find the truth.

Five Days at Memorial comes from Academy Award winner John Ridley and Emmy Award winner Carlton Cuse, who also serve as directors, and stars an award-winning ensemble cast that includes Vera Farmiga, Cornelius Smith Jr., and Emmy Award winner Cherry Jones.

The first three episodes of Five Days at Memorial will be released on August 12. The rest of the episodes will be released on a weekly basis every Friday. For $4.99 per month with a seven-day free trial, Apple’s streaming service is available on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, and Apple TV via the Apple TV app.
