Apple TV’s online movie theater has announced release dates for a new mini-series based on a book by author Sheri Fink. In 2013, she released a work that tells the true story of doctors in New Orleans who are forced to make difficult choices regarding patients. The reason for this was the difficult situation at the hospital and the lack of resources due to Hurricane Katrina, which cut off the polyclinic from the world for several days. The Five Days at Memorial series will be released on August 12, 2022. On release day, viewers will be shown three episodes of the show at once.
The cast and crew of #FiveDaysAtMemorial take a deeper dive into the storm.

Hurricane Katrina was the strongest hurricane ever recorded in the United States. It occurred in 2005 and hit especially hard in New Orleans, which was already in a deplorable economic situation. Nearly 2,000 people died as a result of the disaster, 80 percent of the city was flooded, and the vast majority of the population had left the city.
What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
Under these conditions, the doctors at Memorial Hospital had to perform their duties, with the lower floors of the hospital flooded in the first hours and the clinic also deprived of power. Three days later, help arrived, and on the fifth day, the staff pronounced 40 critically ill patients dead. In the subsequent investigation, they were found to have elevated levels of morphine in their blood, which led to accusations of surgeon Anna Pu. These events are the story of the novelty of Apple TV, whose release date is August 12, 2022.
The deaths of 40 patients led to an investigation into what happened. During the investigation it was found that all of them were given increased doses of morphine, which is forbidden by law and the surgeon Anna Pu decided to do this. The woman would later reveal that the blackout and flooding of the hospital left patients with no chance of survival, and therefore they were given drugs to reduce their suffering. The court will not agree with the girl’s arguments, considering that she exceeded her authority. The series release date for Five Days at Memorial is August 12, 2022.
After the book was released in 2013, Scott Rudin became immediately interested in it, buying the screen rights. Things didn’t budge and the rights were re-bought by Ryan Murphy to make a new season of American Adventure Story. The role was to have been played by Sarah Paulson, but that adaptation wasn’t made either. In 2020, Apple TV became interested in the story and trusted Carlton Puze and John Ridley to shoot it. The lead role in the series is played by Vera Farmiga. The show’s release date is August 12, 2022.
