Ben Affleck & Matt Damon Get Pilot Order from Syfy
LOS ANGELES - Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have received a pilot order for their futuristic drama "Incorporated" from Syfy, the Hollywood Reporter is reporting.
The show is set in a future where corporations have unlimited power and executive Ben Larson tries to infiltrate a company in order to save the woman he loves. Affleck and Damon will serve as executive producers under the banner of their production company, Pearl Street Films. Ted Humphrey, of CBS's "The Good Wife" will be showrunner and executive producer.
"Incorporated" marks Pearl Street's first project for cable at a time when Syfy is seeking more science fiction series to add to its schedule. Last year Pearl Street received a pilot order for the drama "The Middle Man," with Affleck on board as director, but that project was pushed back due to the actor's commitment to the film "Batman v. Superman."
The company is also producing a revival of its acclaimed "Project Greenlight" series for HBO.
