USA Network in partnership with indie studio Blumhouse Productions and Universal Cable Productions brought The Purge to San Diego Comic-Con in a big way! Beginning on Thursday, July 19, USA Network opened the doors of America’s first “Purge City” store, an immersive experience in the heart of San Diego’s Gaslamp District, to the public. Jason Blum, founder of Blumhouse Productions and producer of “The Purge” film franchise and the all-new series, and James DeMonaco, franchise creator and executive producer of “The Purge” films and THE PURGE series, stopped by the one-stop shop “Purge City” to stock up on Purge night essentials and see the activation brought to life.

THE PURGE 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.

Later that day, Blum and DeMonaco joined the cast and creators of the blockbuster film franchise and upcoming television series for a special panel that gave an exclusive inside look into how THE PURGE is expanding its universe – highlighting the hit new feature film The First Purge (read our review), which is currently in cinemas, as well as the upcoming television series, which will debut on USA Network on Tuesday, September 4 at 10/9c.

Moderated by Ryan Turek, VP of Feature Film Development at Blumhouse Productions and co-host of Shock Waves Podcast, Blum and DeMonaco were joined on-stage by premiere episode director Anthony Hemingway (“Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G.”); “The First Purge” star Lex Scott Davis (“SuperFly”); film franchise, THE PURGE series producer Brad Fuller (“A Quiet Place,” “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”), series showrunner Tom Kelly, and series stars Gabriel Chavarria, Amanda Warren and Fiona Dourif.
