Emmy® and Golden Globe® winning director Anthony Hemingway will direct the premiere episode of the Syfy and USA Network’s adaptation of The Purge.
The series has also added two actors to the cast: 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; and Jessica Garza (“Six”) will play the role of Penelope, who belongs to a Purge-worshipping cult.
The Purge is a fast-paced, occasionally thought-provoking bit of microbudget mayhem that postulates an America that is nearly unemployment and crime-free – the latter through the annual event that gives the movie its name: Purge Night – twelve hours during which any crime, up to and including murder, is legal.
