Syfy has greenlit Incorporated, a new pilot from Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s Pearl Street Productions.
According to the network, Incorporated is a dystopian series, set in a future where companies have unlimited power. It tells the story of executive Ben Larson, who is forced to change his identity in order to infiltrate a cut-throat corporate world, to save the woman he loves. In the process, he will take on the entire system – with deadly consequences.
“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. We believe this is an important and timely story to tell and can think of no one better to guide us into this than David, Alex and Ted,” said Damon and Affleck in a statement when news broke today.
Syfy President Dave Howe added, “Syfy is working with the best talent in the business to develop the most provocative and smart science fiction programming, and we are delighted to be partnering with Matt, Ben and Jennifer, along with the creative minds of the Pastor brothers and Ted on this pilot.
“Incorporated is an electrifying example of what science fiction does best: holding a mirror to present realities and projecting forward to a recognizable future in which we face the impact and consequences of our actions,” he added.
No premiere date has been scheduled for the pilot, but we’ll keep you updated with news as we hear it.
