From Blumhouse Television and Universal Cable Productions, THE PURGE, which will air on USA and SYFY, and the series was created, and will be executive produced by the film franchise creator James DeMonaco, and led by Jason Blum, the entire team behind the blockbusters are on board to executive produce: Michael Bay with Brad Fuller and Andrew Form under the Platinum Dunes banner and Sebastien K. Lemercier. Thomas Kelly serves as executive producer/showrunner of the series. In addition to Hemingway's involvement in the series, Universal Cable Productions recently announced the castings of two of the ensemble leads in THE PURGE. Gabriel Chavarria ("East Los High") is set for the role of Miguel, who is a US Marine with a hard edge and a noble mission. After receiving a cryptic letter from his little sister, he returns to town on Purge Night - prepared to face the senseless violence in the streets alone in order to protect what he loves most - his family. Jessica Garza ("Six") will play the role of Penelope, who belongs to a Purge-worshipping cult. Having pledged herself to be sacrificed at the behest of their charismatic leader, Penelope's faith is tested when she is exposed to the ghastly realities of the Purge. Amanda Warren ("Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri") is set for the role of Jane, a dedicated and hardworking finance professional, Jane's convinced that she's hit an insurmountable glass ceiling at her firm, so she hires a Purge-assassin. Colin Woodell will play the role of Rick who is finally climbing the social ladder, but currying favor with the pro-Purge elite presents unexpected challenges to his marriage, as he and his wife (Jenna) must agree on what moral price they'll pay to achieve the American dream.PRINCIPAL CAST INFORMATION:· Amanda Warren as Jane· Colin Woodell as Rick· Fiona Dourif as Tavis· Gabriel Chavarria as Miguel· Hannah Anderson as Jenna· Jessica Garza as Penelope· Lee Tergesen as Joe· Lili Simmons as Lila· William Baldwin as Don RykerCREW INFORMATION:· Andrew Form as EP· Anthony Hemingway as DIR (Pilot)· Brad Fuller as EP· James DeMonaco as CRTR/EP· Jason Blum as EP· Michael Bay as EP· Sebastien K.
