Amazon Prime Video to Bring The Purge TV Series in India
The hotly anticipated thriller series comes exclusively to Prime Video outside of the U.S. on the heels of the worldwide box office success of The First Purge film.
Amazon Prime Video announced the upcoming availability of the eagerly awaited new thriller series, The Purge, in India and more than 200 countries and territories around the world. The series will be available internationally on Prime Video in the original language on September 5, a day after the U.S. broadcast premiere on USA Network on September 4, for a run of ten episodes, with new episodes released weekly. Additional local languages will be available later this year.
Based on the hit movie franchise from Blumhouse Productions, The Purge revolves around a 12-hour period when all crime, including murder, is legal. Gabriel Chavarria (East Los High), Lili Simmons (Ray Donovan), Jessica Garza (Six), Amanda Warren (The Leftovers), Colin Woodell (Unsane), Hannah Anderson (New Mutants) and Lee Tergesen (Oz) star, with William Baldwin (Backdraft) and Fiona Dourif (Curse of Chucky) recurring. The series is set in an altered America ruled by a totalitarian political party, following 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.
From indie studio Blumhouse Television and Universal Cable Productions, The Purge is written and executive produced by the film franchise creator James DeMonaco and led by Jason Blum (Get Out, Split). Additionally, the entire team behind the blockbuster franchise are on board to executive produce: Michael Bay with Brad Fuller (A Quiet Place, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and Andrew Form under the Platinum Dunes banner and Sébastien K. Lemercier. Thomas Kelly serves as executive producer/showrunner of the series. Emmy® and Golden Globe® -winner Anthony Hemingway (Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G.) will direct and executive produce the premiere episode.
