27 August 2018

If you like us are bummed that we always end up waiting to see THE PURGE films first on home entertainment after they skip a theatrical release in Australia, you’ll be pleased to hear that the television series will stream locally within a day of airing in the United States.

That’s right folks, Amazon Australia have acquired the local broadcast rights to THE PURGE television series and will make them available for customers to stream via their Prime Video service weekly from Wednesday September 5th.

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 (JIGSAW) and Lee Tergesen (OUTCAST) 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 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) 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.
