Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have a new TV project in the works for Syfy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“‘Incorporated’ is described as a futuristic espionage thriller set in a world where corporations have seemingly unlimited power. The drama will be the story of one man’s efforts to beat the system,” the story reports.
The pilot, from CBS TV Studios and Damon and Affleck’s Pearl Street Films, will be written by brothers David and Alex Pastor. Ted Humphrey of “The Good Wife” is on board as showrunner and executive producer.
“For Pearl Street, ‘Incorporated’ marks the shingle’s first scripted cable foray and second scripted overall. Last year, Fox handed out a pilot order to drama ‘The Middle Man,’ with Affleck set to direct,” the story notes. “The project was rolled to accommodate Affleck’s film commitment to ‘Batman v. Superman.’ The company is currently producing HBO’s revival of ‘Project Greenlight’ and is in preproduction on feature Live by Night, which was written and directed by leading man Affleck.”
