Jessica Miesel (The Resident) has joined the recurring cast of upcoming The Purge series for USA Network. Based on the hit movie franchise from Blumhouse Productions, The Purge revolves around a 12-hour period when all crime, including murder, is legal. Set in an altered America ruled by a totalitarian political party, the series follows several seemingly unrelated characters living in a small city. As the clock winds down, each character is forced to reckon with their past as they discover how far they will go to survive the night. Miesel will play Alison, who dreams of a corner office and promotion. Miesel can be seen in STXfilms’ upcoming feature The Best of Enemies, starring Taraji P. Henson and Sam Rockwell. She also recurs as Nurse Jessica Moore on The Resident which is going into its second season on Fox. Miesel is repped by LINK Entertainment and J Pervis Talent Agency.
