Even though Matt Damon and Ben Affleck aren’t usually associated with science fiction—Damon has a small role in The Zero Theorem and Affleck has Paycheck—the duo will be developing the sci-fi espionage thriller Incorporated for Syfy. Per the press release, the show is “set in a world where corporations have seemingly unlimited power. This will be the story of one man’s efforts to beat the system.” A world where corporations have seemingly unlimited power? That’s preposterous! I don’t know if anyone can buy a series that’s set in a world that sounds exactly like our world.
David and Alex Pastor (The Last Days) will write the pilot. Ted Humphrey (The Good Wife) will serve as executive producer/showrunner, with Damon, Affleck and Jennifer Todd also executive producing. Pearl Street Film’s Margaret Chernin will serve as associate producer. Hit the jump for the press release.
