A futuristic thriller drama from Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s production company has gone to pilot at US cable network Syfy.
Pearl Street Productions will produce Incorporated along with CBS Television Studios and Universal Cable Productions.
Set in a world where companies have unlimited dpower, it will follow an executive force to change his identity in order to infiltrate the corporate world and save the woman he loves.
David and Alex Pastor (Selfless, The Last Days) created and wrote the pilot, which will reflects modern trends such as private interests’ influence on Washington politics, the dismantling of the public sector and growing disparate wealth distribution.
Ted Humphrey (The Good Wife) will serve as executive producer and showrunner, with Damon, Affleck and Jennifer Todd also executive producing. Pearl Street Film’s Margaret Chernin will be associate producer.
“Incorporated provides us distinct insight into a world dictated by our decisions today, said actors Damon and Affleck. “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.”
Their prodco, Pearl Street, is currently producing a new season of Project Greenlight for HBO.
