What if one night a year, for 10 continuous hours all crime was legal, including murder? Described by its creators as a cautionary tale, The Purge is a 10-episode series from USA Network, based on the movie franchise of the same name.

The Purge was filmed in New Orleans, Louisiana. The show focuses on the purge night, but it also includes flashbacks with people planning.
