THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE PURGE AT SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON HAS OFFICIALLY BEGUN

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.

Today Jason Blum, founder of Blumhouse Productions and producer of the film franchise and the all-new series, and James DeMonaco, franchise creator and executive producer, stopped by the one-stop shop “Purge City” to stock up on Purge night essentials and see the activation brought to life.

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,” which is currently in theaters, 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.”); Stars Lex Scott Davis (“SuperFly”); film franchise producer Brad Fuller (“A Quiet Place,” “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”), series showrunner Tom Kelly, and series stars Gabriel Chavarria, Amanda Warren and Fiona Dourif.
