Damon/Affleck Project Coming to Syfy

"Incorporated" is a new series coming from the minds of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. The last time these two put their heads together for a major project resulted in the Academy Award winning film "Good Will Hunting." This time the writing/producing team are focusing on cable television, specifically the Syfy Channel.

The TV movie, which will likely lead to a regular series, is set 47-years in the future where the world is teetering on disaster as a result of continued climatic changes, mega corporations completely out of control and city landscapes that range from the heavenly elegance to complete chaos and nearly medieval living conditions. One man tries to do what has never been attempted — bring about the downfall of one of the largest and most powerful corporations on the planet named Chrysalis which is responsible for much of the world's dilemma.

Damon and Affleck will executive produce while Alex Pastor (Self/less) is set to direct the pilot film and is the script's co-writer with his brother David Pastor (The Last Days).

"Incorporated" has a young leading cast including Sean Teale (Survivor), Georgia Haig (Once Upon A Time) and Eddie Ramos (Teen Wolf).

The project is currently in its prep-production stage. Syfy has yet to announce a premiere date.
