SyFy Gives the Greenlight to the Futuristic Thriller, INCORPORATED; Will Join the Lineup of Powerhouse Series in 2016

INCORPORATED has been greenlit for 13 episodes for its first season. The new drama series is produced by Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Todd’s Pearl Street Films, along with CBS Television Studios and Universal cable productions. The first episode of the new series is expected to premiere on SyFy in Fall 1016.

Set in a near future where corporations have unlimited power, INCORPORATED centers around a young executive, Ben Larson (Sean Teale, “Reign”), who hides his true identity to infiltrate a very dangerous corporate world to save the woman he loves. However, he will soon learn that he is not the only one whose secrets may have deadly consequences. In addition to Teale, the series will star Eddie Ramos (“Teen Wolf”), Golden Globe nominee Dennis Haysbert (“24”), and Emmy Award winner Julia Ormond (“Mad Men”).

INCORPORATED is created by David and Alex Pastor (“Selfless,” “The Last Days”), who wrote and directed the pilot. Ted Humphrey (“The Good Wife”) will serve as executive producer/showrunner, along with Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Todd as executive producers. Pearl Street Films’ Margaret Chermin will serve as a co-producer.

“The most powerful science fiction holds up a mirror to our world,” said Dave Howe, President, SyFy & 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. We look forward to working with the stellar teams at Pearl Street Films, CBS Television Studios and Universal Cable Productions to bring it to life for SyFy viewers this year.”

INCORPORATED joins a powerhouse SyFy original lineup in 2016 that includes the critically-acclaimed first season of THE EXPANSE and THE MAGICIANS; the April 11 premiere of HUNTERS, from “The Walking Dead” executive producer Gale Anne Hurd; the second season of the thriller series 12 MONKEYS, set to premiere April 18; and the Halloween anthology series CHANNEL ZERO: CANDLE COVE. Additional high-profile scripted projects in development at SyFy include Aldous Huxley’s classic novel BRAVE NEW WORLD from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television, and HYPERION, with executive producer Bradley Cooper.

Hello, my name is Arlene Allen, and I love all things nerd: genre tv and movies, books, loud rock and roll music, kittens, conventions, books, graphic novels and superheroes, RPG and tabletop games, and did I say books? Oh, yes. I spent 25 years as a librarian (nerd) mainly working with youth (creating nerds), a number of years as a teacher (more nerd indoctrination). I have my own spawn, leveled up to 22 and my partner in nerdiness. As a nerdy writer, I have found a home at Talk Nerdy With Us.
