New, 9 comments

The two are producing their own Mr. Robot-type show

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are about to venture into television once again following a series order from Syfy for their new show, Incorporated.

The series, which is described by the network as a "futuristic thriller," follows young executive Ben Larson as he masks his identity in an attempt to infiltrate one of the biggest corporations in the world and save the woman he loves.

The show stars Sean Teale (Reign) as Larson, and will also include the acting talents of Eddie Ramos (Teen Wolf), Dennis Haysbert (24) and Julia Ormond (Mad Men). Affleck and Damon will act as executive producers on the show, which will be run by Ted Humphrey (The Good Wife).

Incorporated is the latest to join Syfy's recently rebranded slate of programs, including The Magicians, The Expanse and Brave New World.

Dave Howe, president of Syfy and Chiller, said that Incorporated was the type of science-fiction that "holds up a mirror to the world" and "challenges the notions of the world we live in today."

If it sounds like the type of genre programming made popular by shows like Mr. Robot, that's exactly what it is. Networks like Syfy have seen what USA accomplished with the type of dark, off-kilter dramas they're producing and are jumping on board.

Incorporated will air later this fall.
