Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Developing Espionage Thriller With Syfy

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s Pearl Street shingle and CBS Television Studios have partnered with Syfy to develop the TV series “Incorporated,” a futuristic espionage thriller.

Set in a world where corporations have seemingly unlimited power, the story will focus on one man’s efforts to beat the system. David and Alex Pastor (“Selfless”, “The Last Days”) will write the pilot. Ted Humphrey (“The Good Wife”) will serve as executive producer/showrunner, with Damon, Affleck and Jennifer Todd also executive producing. Pearl Street Film’s Margaret Chernin will serve as associate producer.

Although it is still known for campy projects like “Sharknado,” the deal is another example of how Syfy has been upping its game in scripted content. The cabler recently ordered the alien series “Hunters” from “The Walking Dead’s” Gale Anne Hurd and it is developing “Ghost Brigades,” which is based on the “Old Man’s War” universe book series, with Wolfgang Petersen and Scott Stuber. Its adaptation of the Brad Pitt-Bruce Willis film “12 Monkeys” premieres in January.

The Hollywood Reporter first broke the news of the deal.
