Author’s novel on aftermath Hurricane Katrina made into Apple Tv+ series

Sheri Fink's book Five Days At Memorial tells the story of the immediate impact at a New Orleans hospital after disaster hit the city in 2005.

Francine Wolfisz is the Features Editor for Jewish News.

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sheri Fink’s novel, which chronicles the events shortly after Hurricane Katrina made landfall, will be turned into a new series on Apple Tv+.

Five Days At Memorial tells the story of the first five days in a New Orleans hospital after disaster hit the city in 2005.

When the floodwaters rose, the power failed, the heat climbed and exhausted caregivers were forced to make life-and-death decisions that haunted them for years to come.

Fink will serve as a producer on the project, while director John Ridley (12 Years A Slave, American Crime) will also co-write alongside Carlton Cuse (Jack Ryan, Lost).
