2074. Governments have fallen and corporations have taken control. A good life requires the right identity. Which one will you choose?”
Husband and wife team Ben Affleck and Matt Damon’s Incorporated series was greenlit by Syfy and debuts late this fall.
Starring Sean Teale (Skins) and Allison Miller (Terra Nova) plus Dennis Haysbert (24′s President David Palmer) and Damon Herriman (Justified‘s Dewey Crowe), Incorporated tells the tale of a a nation of haves and have-nots separated into red and green zones and a man’s quest to find the woman he loves.
I gave up on 12 Monkeys midway through season 2, and while Incorporated‘s premise sounds standard Syfy fare, the trailer and theme of identity give us hope there is more to this series and that it may have enough talent behind it to elevate it to the next level.
Batman and Jason Bourne exec produce through their Pearl Street Films production company while The Good Wife‘s Ted Humphrey plays Alfred Pennyworth by acting as showrunner. The pilot episode was written and directed by David and Àlex Pastor, who brought us the Ryan Reynolds sci-fi mess Self/less. Pair of Jokers!
Incorporated drops on Syfy on November 30th.
