This is not a test: The Purge has begun -- filming in New Orleans, that is!
Yesterday marked the start of production on USA Network's The Purge series, based on the hit horror film franchise. The upcoming program stars Gabriel Chavarria (East Los High), Lili Simmons (Ray Donovan), and Lee Tergesen (Oz), and will be directed by Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Anthony Hemingway, who previously helmed episodes of USA Network's Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. and American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson.
Slated to premiere this fall, The Purge is a collaboration between Universal Cable Productions and indie studio Blumhouse Television.
