USA Network - The Purge trailer

USA Network has released a first look at “The Purge.”

The 10-episode television event, based on the hit movie franchise, will commence on September 4 and revolves around a 12-hour period when all crime, including murder, is legal.

Set in a dystopian America ruled by a totalitarian political party, the series follows several seemingly unrelated characters living in a small city. Tying them all together is a mysterious savior who’s impeccably equipped for everything the night throws at them.

As the clock winds down with their fates hanging in the balance, each character is forced to reckon with their pasts as they discover how far they will go to survive the night.

Emmy and Golden Globe award-winner Anthony Hemingway will direct and executive produce the premiere episode.
