The Purge

SYFY | 10:00 pm

Adapted from the successful horror movie franchise of the same title, this new 10-episode series takes place in an alternative version of the United States that’s in the grips of a totalitarian political party, where once a year all crimes — including murder — become legal for 12 hours. The show follows several seemingly unrelated characters bracing themselves for the start of one such period, a moment that causes them to reflect on their lives. Lili Simmons, Gabriel Chavarria, Lee Tergesen and Jessica Garza star.
