A new sci-fi show from Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s production company Pearl Street Film? Yes please…
Incorporated is an ” espionage thriller is set in a future where companies have unlimited power [telling] 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. In the process, he will take on the entire system — with deadly consequences.”
It was created by David and Alex Pastor, who wrote and will also direct the pilot. Dave Howe, president of Syfy, who have greenlit the pilot, said: “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 [and] Ben, along with the creative minds of the Pastor brothers.
“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.”
Damon and Affleck added: “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 (Humphrey, exec producer and showrunner).”
We’ll keep you posted as this gets closer to happening, folks…
