Emmy winner Sterling K. Brown says he's hopeful that there will be a role for him in the upcoming season of FX's American Crime Story that will be based on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Brown, who won his second Emmy award earlier this month for his role on NBC's "This Is Us," appeared on "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen" on Bravo Wednesday evening. A caller asked if Brown, who previously won an Emmy for his role as prosecutor Christopher Darden in "American Crime Story: The People v. O. J. Simpson," whether he would have any role in the future Katrina-related installment. Producers have said it will be based on the book "Five Days at Memorial" about New Orleans Memorial Medical Center and Dr. Anna Pou, who is alleged to have euthanized critically ill patients in the aftermath of the catastrophic 2005 storm.
"It's going to take place next year .. hopefully there's some room in there for yours truly," Brown said.
FX's "American Crime Story: Katrina" is back on track, according to a report by the Hollywood Reporter.
It was reported last month that, even after casting had been announced for roles that included then-Gov. Kathleen Blanco for a broader Katrina story, original plans had been scrapped, and creators instead decided to go with the Memorial hospital story.
"It's being revamped," Brown said, loosely explaining the new focus on Memorial hospital.
FX will air the next season of "American Crime Story" based on the 1997 murder of fashion designer Gianni Versace, starting in 2018. Producers have said the Katrina-based season will come after that, likely in 2019.
