We have some exciting news for American Crime Story fans!
Katrina will now get its source material from the book “Five Days At Memorial” by Pulitzer Prize-winner Sheri Fink.
“I’m confident it will air,” FX Networks CEO John Landgraf said. “[Ryan] Murphy has a great idea for a pivot [and] now it’s in really good shape.”
The project will focus on “the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina at Memorial Medical Center in New Orleans, and the decision by medical staff, led by Dr. Anna Pou, to euthanize critically ill patients after being trapped in the hospital for days without power.”
Sarah Paulson will star as Dr. Pou. No other cast members have been confirmed yet.
Katrina will begin production in the spring and premiere in 2019 as the third season in the ACS franchise, while The Assassination of Gianni Versace will now premiere as season two.
