Incorporated is described as a futuristic espionage thriller set in a world where corporations have seemingly unlimited power. The drama will be the story of one man’s efforts to beat the system.

Brothers David and Alex Pastor (Selfless, The Last Days) will pen the pilot, which hails from CBS Television Studios and Pearl Street. Ted Humphrey (The Good Wife) will serve as showrunner and executive producer, via his overall deal with the studio. Damon, Affleck and Pearl Street president Jennifer Todd are also attached to executive produce. Pearl Street creative executive Margaret Chernin is on board as associate producer.

For Pearl Street, Incorporated marks the shingle’s first scripted cable foray and second scripted overall. Last year, Fox handed out a pilot order to drama The Middle Man, with Affleck set to direct. The project was rolled to accommodate Affleck’s film commitment to Batman v. Superman. The company is currently producing HBO’s revival of Project Greenlight and is in preproduction on feature Live by Night, which was written and directed by leading man Affleck.
