Syfy has given the go-ahead to a futuristic espionage thriller from Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s Pearl Street Productions. The cable channel announced it ordered a pilot for “Incorporated,” with CBS TV Studios and Universal Cable Productions also among the producers.
“Set in a future where companies have unlimited power, ‘Incorporated’ tells the story of executive Ben Larson, forced to change his identity in order to infiltrate a cut-throat corporate world, to save the woman he loves,” Syfy says in its announcement. “In the process, he will take on the entire system — with deadly consequences.”
In a statement, Damon and Affleck said: “‘Incorporated’ provides us distinct insight into a world dictated by our decisions today. Viewers will delve into the intricacies of our future, one that we are constantly warned of, but as a society have not yet explored.”
