Syfy announced today it has cast Julia Ormond (Sabrina, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) to star in Incorporated, a futuristic espionage thriller pilot from Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s Pearl Street Productions, CBS Television Studios and Universal Cable Productions.
Ormond joins previously announced cast members Sean Teale (Reign), Georgina Haig (Once Upon a Time) and Eddie Ramos (Teen Wolf).
Ormond will play Ben’s mother-in-law, Elizabeth, a whip-smart, powerful top executive who enjoys the perks of her position, but is also trapped in a ruthless system that demands results.
Ben lives with wife Laura (Haig), Elizabeth’s daughter, in the lush, manicured Green Zone of the well-to-do, while Theo (Ramos) dwells in the dangerous, poverty-stricken Red Zone, and may provide a surprising connection to Ben’s past. In a high-stakes world where the ethical boundaries we know have been completely redrawn, how far is Ben willing to go — and what happens if he fails?
Set in a future where companies have seemingly unlimited power, Incorporated centers around Ben Larson (Teale), a young executive who risks everything to infiltrate an all-controlling corporate world and save the woman he loves. In the process, he will take on the entire system — with deadly consequences.
Syfy greenlit the pilot in April, which is scheduled to commence production later this year.
