Wednesday, February 3, 2016 - 15:15

Incorporated has the classic science fiction genre: futuristic thriller. It's got the right talent: from Matt Damon, Ben Affleck & Jennifer Todd’s Pearl Street Films. And now it's got the greenlight: The 13-episode first season of the new drama series is expected to premiere Fall 2016.

Set in a near future where corporations have unlimited power, Incorporated centers around Ben Larson (Sean Teale, “Reign”), a young executive who conceals his true identity to infiltrate a very dangerous corporate world to save the woman he loves. But he’ll soon learn that he’s not the only one whose secrets may have deadly consequences. In addition to Teale, the series will star Eddie Ramos (“Teen Wolf”), Golden Globe nominee Dennis Haysbert (“24”), and Emmy Award winner Julia Ormond (“Mad Men”). 

Incorporated is created by David & Alex Pastor (“Selfless”, “The Last Days”), who wrote and directed the pilot. Ted Humphrey (“The Good Wife”) will serve as executive producer/showrunner, with Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Todd also executive producing. Pearl Street Films’ Margaret Chernin will serve as co-producer.

Incorporated joins a powerhouse Syfy original lineup in 2016 that includes the critically-acclaimed first seasons of The Expanse and The Magicians; the April 11 premiere of Hunters, from The Walking Dead executive producer Gale Anne Hurd; the second season of the thriller series 12 Monkeys, set to premiere April 18; and the Halloween anthology series Channel Zero: Candle Cove. We've also got Aldous Huxley’s classic novel Brave New World from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television, and Hyperion, with executive producer Bradley Cooper in the works. We're firing on all cylinders here people!
