Syfy’s Incorporated – the first television series from Ben Affleck and Matt Damon’s Pearl Street Films – has added three quality genre veterans to its cast: Dennis Haysbert (pictured – 24, Now and Again), David Hewlitt (Stargate Atlantis, Dark Matter) and Ian Tracey (Wayward Pines, Continuum).

Set in a world where corporations run everything, Incorporated follows an executive, Ben (Sean Teale, Reign) who must change his identity to infiltrate a cutthroat world to save the woman he loves.

Further details lie just beyond the jump.
