Loot where to stream
Five Days at Memorial
Beginning with the first three of eight episodes, this emotionally harrowing docudrama follows the horrific conditions at the New Orleans hospital that was flooded during the devastation of Hurricane Katrina 17 years ago this month. Vera Farmiga and Cherry Jones lead the impressive cast, playing nurses and administrators who work against all odds to tend to their stranded patients when the power goes out in the scorching heat as they wait a fateful series of days for help.
A League of Their Own
Baseball became more than a game for the ladies of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League in the 1940s. It’s a lifeline to self-discovery in an eight-episode seriocomic twist on the popular 1992 film. Abbi Jacobson (who co-developed the series with Will Graham) plays the initially insecure Carson Shaw, who reluctantly leads the team while growing along explores their sexual identity. While the Rockford Peaches face skepticism and gender discrimination, they have it easy compared to Max (Chanté Adams), who is female and black and, despite her evil nod, is not welcome with either the Peaches or the local factory team. Times are changing as a strong cast of colorful personalities (including the fabulous D’Arcy Carden as Carson’s seductively sophisticated teammate) swings wildly. In the end, you will be root-root-root for them all. (See the full review.)
