Why Isn’t the 1918 Flu Pandemic A Movie or Cable TV Series?

One of the greatest mysteries to me is why exactly is the 1918 Flu Pandemic which killed between 20-100 million people worldwide, 2.5 to 5% of the worlds population at the time and 500,000 -675,000 people in the United States, basically forgotten about like it never happened. I mean doesn’t anyone find it odd that there aren’t any movies or great novels about this horrible event? After all, if there isn’t a movie or TV series about a major world event, did it even happen?
