Syfy Greenlights Matt Damon & Ben Affleck’s Futuristic Series ‘Incorporated’

Syfy has greenlit the futuristic thriller “Incorporated,” which hails from exec producers Matt Damon and Ben AffleckVariety has learned. The series landed a 13-episode order, which is slated to premiere this fall.

Produced by Damon and Affleck’s Pearl Street Films along with CBS Television Studios and Syfy’s sister studio Universal Cable Productions, “Incorporated” was created by David and Alex Pastor, who wrote and directed the pilot, which was picked up last April.

Set in a near future where corporates have unlimited power, “Incorporated” revolves around Ben Larson (played by 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.

Teale will co-star with Eddie Ramos (“Teen Wolf”), Dennis Haysbert (“24”) and Julia Ormond (“Mad Men”).

“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.”

Along with Damon, Affleck and the creators, exec producers include Pearl Street’s Jennifer Todd, plus Ted Humphrey, who will serve as showrunner. Also from Pearl Street, Margaret Chernin is attached as a co-producer.

A sign of continued attention to high-profile dramas, “Incorporated” joins Syfy’s growing slate of series, including “The Expanse,” “The Magicians,” upcoming drama “Hunters” from “The Walking Dead’s” Gale Ann Hurd, which premieres April 11, and the upcoming Halloween series “Channel Zero,” which landed a two-season order.
