Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
We learned some time ago that Blumhouse launched their own independent TV studio along with ITV Studios with the plan being to produce both scripted and unscripted genre shows. The first project on that list will be based off of THE PURGE franchise.
With the prequel to the existing PURGE trilogy, THE FIRST PURGE now being made, it would seem that THE PURGE television series will be holding hands with the film. Creator James DeMonaco and Blumhouse Television prepare their television series to air on USA as well as the Syfy Network.
We have learned that Lili Simmons, Hannah Anderson, and Lee Tergesen have all been cast for THE PURGE TV series.
Lili Simmons will play Lila, "a young, rich, and rebellious, woman who refuses to fit in with the pro-Purge socialite crowd. Her confidence and charm mask a vulnerability that will be exposed as she attempts to deal with unfinished business before the sun rises."
Hannah Anderson will take on the role of Jenna, "an anti-Purge and devoted to charitable causes, who is accustomed to locking down on Purge Night. Her choice to venture out for the first time leads to an encounter with violence that forces her to deal with deep truths about herself and her marriage."
Lee Tergesen play the part of a man named Joe, who is "an armored, masked, and seemingly ordinary man who drives through town, intervening acts of Purge violence while listening to the taped lectures of a motivational life coach."
Simmons, Anderson, and Tergesen all join the cast which includes Amanda Warren, Colin Woodell, Gabriel Chavarria, and Jessica Garza.
THE PURGE TV series will be produced by Blumhouse along with Universal Cable Productions. Platinum Dunes and Sebastien K Lemercier will serve as executive producers on the series.
Producer Jason Blum previously revealed what we can expect from THE PURGE TV series saying:
“It will reveal to the fans what happens the other 364 days of the year and how that law affects people."
