About ‘Five Days at Memorial’
With a massive storm on the way, the dual management of Memorial Hospital are at odds and a lack of communication that ensures no one is prepared for the coming disaster. With water rising and the power out all over New Orleans, the staff soon finds itself cut off from civilization. As doctors and nurses attempt an evacuation of biblical proportions, they must make life-and-death choices that will haunt them for years to come.
Based on actual events from Hurricane Katrina. When the floodwaters rose, power failed, and heat soared, exhausted caregivers at a New Orleans hospital were forced to make profound, heart-wrenching decisions.
Adapted from Sheri Fink’s 2013 book “Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital,” the series takes a snapshot of the Hurricane Katrina catastrophe and the dangerous decisions that can be made when lives hang in the balance. John Ridley (“12 Years a Slave”) and Carlton Cuse (“Lost”), writers for the series, wanted to show what compassion and mercy can look like when caregivers are pushed to extremes.
The premiere, consisting of the first three episodes, will air on Friday, Aug. 12 with the remaining five appearing on the service each successive Friday through Sept. 16.
