The N Sets Katrina Special


The N will air special A Walk in Your Shoes: Katrina's Aftermath Tuesday, Oct. 18 at 9 p.m. (EST), the network said Thursday.

The half-hour special, filmed over the course of one day 10 days after the storm, “chronicles the changed lives of five friends from Metairie, La., and the enormity of the tragedy through their adolescent eyes,” The N said.

The N will also air a call-to-action message following A Walk in Your Shoes, telling viewers how they can help the students of Grace King High School -- where the five people spotlighted in the special attended school -- and Jefferson Parish Public Schools, in general.
