News USA Network and Syfy’s “The Purge” TV Series Story Details Revealed Published 6 months ago on May 4, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning director Anthony Hemingway is attached to direct the pilot episode of USA Network and Syfy’s “The Purge” TV series. EW caught of up franchise creator James DeMonaco to discuss the upcoming TV series. Continue reading to find out what he revealed to the site regarding story details. “I’d say it’s 70, 65 percent Purge Night and then 30 percent flashback,” said DeMonaco. “We follow four what-seem-to-be separate storylines of people going out on the evening and experiencing the Purge. The real estate of the 10 hours of the TV allows us to use flashback, where we flashback out of the Purge world, into the regular lives, the non-Purge days, of this future America. We get to see who these people are when it’s not Purge Night and the events that led them to where they are on the particular Purge night that we are following.” DeMonaco says the TV series will be slower burn than the movies: “I think it’s a great device. The real estate of TV lets us truly analyze why anyone would resort to violence on Purge Night. So, it’s a slower burn. Whereas the movies are kind of a punch in the face — you know, these big events — I think the TV show, with the real estate of it, allows us to truly analyze why anyone would pick up a gun or a knife to solve a problem. We really get to examine the night, and the intricacies of the evening, and the nuances of the evening, and the different kinds of people who are out on the streets in a way that I just couldn’t do in the movies.” The series stars William Baldwin, Lili Simmons, Amanda Warren, Colin Woodell, Hannah Anderson, Lee Tergesen, Gabriel Chavarria and Jessica Garza. “The Purge” TV series is executive produced by franchise creators DeMonaco, Blumhouse’s Jason Blum, Michael Bay, Platinum Dunes’ Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, Sebastien K. Lemercier and Thomas Kelly. The series will feature 10-episodes.
