Blumhouse announced the creation of a new independent TV studio along with ITV. And they have some interesting and scary plans for programming.

The Purge

Deadline reports the first two series in the deal will be a series version of The Purge, the highly successful genre series that will continue as a feature. Also, Showtime has secured the previously announced Secure and Hold: The Last Days of Roger Ailes, a limited series spearheaded by Oscar winning co-writer Tom McCarthy and journalist Gabe Sherman, who broke all the sordid allegations of sexual harassment in New York Magazine that prompted Ailes’ ouster at Fox News.

Blumhouse Television continues with co-Presidents, Marci Wiseman and Jeremy Gold, who’ve extended their long term deals as part of the partnership with ITV. They report to Blum and Blumhouse president Charles Layton, all of whom will join ITV on the board of the independent TV company.

Blumhouse Television will team with Universal Cable Productions and franchise creator James DeMonaco on The Purge. The franchise — about one day each year when murder and mayhem is legalized — hatched its highest grossing effort so far with the recent The Purge: Election Year. While the next Purge feature comes summer 2018, DeMonaco will oversee the series which will be an entirely new chapter in America’s 12 hours of annual lawlessness. The show will air on USA and Syfy. Platinum Dunes and DeMonaco’s longtime producing partner Sebastien K. Lemercier will executive produce the series. The next Purge film, from Universal Pictures, opens in summer 2018.
