Syfy has announced that it has greenlit Incorporated for a 13-episode first season. The new drama is a futuristic thriller created by David and Alex Pastor and will have Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Todd serving as executive producers. Ted Humphrey (The Good Wife) will serve as the series’ showrunner.
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”).
“The most powerful science fiction holds up a mirror to our world,” said Dave Howe, President, Syfy & Chiller in a statement. “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.”
