Fresh out of San Diego Comic-Con is a new trailer for the upcoming USA Network series The Purge, which was created by Universal and Blumhouse. The series follows the event of an annual Purge, a 12-hour event where all crime is legal. The 10-episode series will premiere Tuesday, September 4th, at 10/9c.
“The Purge revolves around a 12-hour period when all crime, including murder, is legal. Set in an altered America ruled by a totalitarian political party, the series follows several seemingly unrelated characters living in a small city. As the clock winds down, each character is forced to reckon with their past as they discover how far they will go to survive the night.”
Written and executive produced by the film franchise creator James DeMonaco and led by Jason Blum, the entire team behind the blockbuster franchise are on board to executive produce: Michael Bay with Brad Fuller and Andrew Form under the Platinum Dunes banner and Sebastien K. Lemercier. The series stars Hannah Anderson, William Baldwin, Gabriel Chavarria, Amanda Warren, Jessica Garza, Lili Simmons, Lee Tergesen, and Fiona Dourif; the premiere episode was directed by Anthony Hemingway (Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G.).
