Syfy today announced that Dennis Haysbert has joined the cast of the channel’s new futuristic espionage thriller pilot “Incorporated” from Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s Pearl Street Films, CBS Television Studios and Universal Cable Productions.
Set in a world where companies have unlimited power, executive Ben Larson (played by Sean Teale) is forced to change his identity in order to infiltrate a cut-throat corporate world at SPIGA and save the woman he loves. In the process, he will take on the entire system — with deadly consequences.
Dennis Haysbert has signed up to play series regular Julian, Head of Security and probably the most feared person at SPIGA headquarters. Part detective and part grand inquisitor, Julian is a tenacious investigator with an uncanny ability to sniff out moles and traitors in the company.
The pilot will also star David Hewlett, Ian Tracey, Georgina Haig, Eddie Ramos and Julia Ormond.
“Incorporated” is created by David and Alex Pastor, who wrote and will direct the pilot. Ted Humphrey will serve as executive producer/showrunner, with Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Todd also executive producing. Pearl Street Film’s Margaret Chernin will serve as associate producer.
