Futuristic thriller Incorporated has landed a 13-episode series order at Syfy, bringing together talent from Pearl Street Films, CBS Television Studios and Universal Cable Prods.
Most notably, the corporate-dominated dystopia will be produced by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, who first hatched the show more than a year ago. Remaining true to the style of the sub-genre – and indeed the world around us – Incorporated is situated in a world governed by power-mongering conglomerates, and has been billed as “that type of smart, provocative series, delivering a fresh, edge of your seat thriller that challenges notions of the world we live in today.”
Sean Teale headlines the new drama series as a young executive named Ben Larson, one who goes incognito to infiltrate a powerful corporate enterprise to save the woman he loves. But secrets have consequences, and it isn’t long before Larson stumbles on a web of lies and deceit. For now, Incorporated has pulled together a cast that includes Eddie Ramos, Dennis Haysbert and Julia Ormond with Syfy eyeing a premiere in fall 2016.
Behind the lens, Jennifer Todd will leverage producing duties with Damon and Affleck, and given how committed that latter pair have been to getting Incorporated off the ground, it’s worth keeping an eye to see how the drama pans out now that it’s earned a full-season order.
