Based on the hit movie franchise from Blumhouse ProductionsThe Purge revolved around a 12-hour period when all crime, including murder, is legal.

The series is written and executive produced by the film franchise creator James DeMonaco and led by Jason Blum. Additionally, the entire team behind the blockbuster franchise ‎are on board to executive produce: Michael Bay with Brad Fuller and Andrew Form under the Platinum Dunes banner and Sebastien K. Lemercier. Thomas Kelly serves as executive producer/showrunner of the series. Emmy and Golden Globe award-winner Anthony Hemingway directed and executive produced the pilot episode.

Treadstone explored the origin story and present-day actions of a CIA black ops program known as Treadstone, a covert operation that uses behavior modification protocol to turn its agents into nearly unstoppable superhuman assassins. Jason Bourne, the central character in Universal Pictures’ Bourne film franchise, was a product of the program. The series followed new sleeper agents across the globe as they’re mysteriously “awakened” to resume their deadly missions.

The ensemble cast was led by Jeremy Irvine (War Horse), Brian J. Smith (Sense8) and Han Hyo Joo (Cold EyesThe Beauty Inside). It is created by Heroes creator Tim Kring who served as the writer and executive producer.
