A pilot was ordered a while back, and now Syfy has picked up a 13-episode season of the futuristic thriller Incorporated.
The series comes from producers Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, and is set in a near future where corporations have unlimited power. The plot centers around Ben Larson (Reign’s Sean Teale), 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.
“The most powerful science fiction holds up a mirror to our world,” said Dave Howe, President, of Syfy and Chiller. “Incorporated is exactly that type of smart, provocative series, delivering a fresh, edge of your seat thriller that challenges notions of the world we live in today. We look forward to working with the stellar teams at Pearl Street Films, CBS Television Studios and Universal Cable Productions to bring it to life for Syfy viewers this year.”
Along with Teale, the series will also star Eddie Ramos (Teen Wolf), Golden Globe nominee Dennis Haysbert (24) and Emmy winner Julia Ormond (Mad Men). The series was created by David and Alex Pastor (Selfless, The Last Days), who wrote and directed the pilot. Ted Humphrey (The Good Wife) will serve as showrunner, along with Damon and Affleck.
The project joins a growing lineup of original genre fare at Syfy (Corporate owner of Blastr -Ed.), along with ongoing series The Expanse, The Magicians, 12 Monkeys and Killjoys, plus upcoming projects like Hunters and Channel Zero.
Incorporated premieres this fall on Syfy.
