Prestigious Apple TV+ drama series "Five Days at Memorial" has been premiered in a special event at the Directors' Guild in Los Angeles.

The new eight-part drama recounts the true story of how Hurricane Katrina proved to be just the beginning of a horrifying series of days for the staff of Memorial Medical Center. Based on the book by journalist Sheri Fink, and written by Carlton Cuse and John Ridley, it shows the impossible decisions forced on medical staff as floodwaters rose and resources depleted.

Series cast and crew attended the premiere event at the Directors' Guild of America (DGA) on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.

Stars including Vera Farmiga, Cherry Jones, Cornelius Smith Jr., Robert Pine, Julie Ann Emery, and Adepero Oduye were on the red carpet. Emmy-award winning showrunner Carlton Cuse was also in attendance.

The first three episodes of "Five Days at Memorial" will stream on Apple TV+ from August 12, 2022. The remaining five will be released weekly on Fridays.
