Stargate’s David Hewlett and 24 star Dennis Haysbert are the latest casting additions to Syfy’s Incorporated, it was revealed today.
The announcement follows the recent additions of Georgina Haig (Fringe), Eddie Ramos (Teen Wolf) Julia Ormond (Mad Men) and Ian Tracey (Wayward Pines).
The series comes from Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s Pearl Street Films, CBS Television Studios and Universal Cable Productions, and is based in a world where companies have unlimited power.
The action begins when executive Ben Larson (Sean Teale, Reign) 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.
Ben (Teale) is married to Laura (Haig), a successful plastic surgeon who’s also the daughter of Ben’s boss. While Ben and Laura make their home in the lush, manicured Green Zone of the well-to-do, 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?
Dennis Haysbert plays 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.
Haysbert’s numerous credits include Major League, The Unit, Absolute Power, Jarhead and Ted 2.
David Hewlett has joined the cast of the pilot as Chad, a high-level executive at SPIGA, the all-powerful company in Incorporated, who has reached his position by appeasing his superiors and taking credit for the achievements of his subordinates.
Hewlett has appeared in SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, Stargate Universe, Dark Matter and Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
Ian Tracey has joined the cast of the pilot as Terrence, a corrupt businessman who quickly becomes a benefactor to Theo (Eddie Ramos, Parenthood), but could also become a threat to Ben’s plans for SPIGA. Tracey has starred in Intelligence, Rogue and Bates Motel.
Incorporated is created by David and Alex Pastor (Selfless, The Last Days), who wrote and will direct the pilot. Ted Humphrey (The Good Wife) 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.
