"THE PURGE" TV SERIES IN DEVELOPMENT FOR USA NETWORK
Announced Tuesday, independent TV studio Blumhouse Television is developing a series based on The Purge franchise, which will air on USA Network and its sister network Syfy.
Blumhouse will team up with Universal Cable Productions (Suits) and Purge creator James DeMonaco to develop an entirely new chapter of the franchise for television.
In The Purge movies, all laws are suspended for 12 hours and anything that could happen, usually does. The series would mark the dark genre franchise's first foray into a scripted TV one-hour thriller.
Separately, a new Purge feature film from Universal is set to hit theaters in summer 2018.
