News came out from Deadline recently that Blumhouse studios is launching its own television department. One of their first shows will based on the Purge franchise.
Here is what Jason Blum said: “Over the past few years, we have been working to build Blumhouse Television into an independent studio so we can have the autonomy to work with the best storytellers and give them freedom to create the best dark genre programming. It is a dream that day is here. Julian and his team at ITV are remarkable partners and we can’t wait to kick things off with The Purge and Secure and Hold. We are excited that with the launch of this new studio, we are expanding our partnership with NBCUniversal by growing The Purge franchise into a television series and are grateful for their incredible support of Blumhouse overall.”
I’m curious to see how this plays out. The Purge franchise has always been interesting. Let’s us know what you think. Is it a good idea or not? Sound off below.
