Sean Teale (above), Georgina Haig and Eddie Ramos will star in Syfy’s futuristic pilot, Incorporated – set in a world where corporations are pretty openly in charge.
Teale stars as Ben, a young executive who risks everything to save the woman he loves. Haig play Laura, Ben’s plastic surgeon wife and aughter of Ben’s boss. Ramos plays Theo, dweller in the poverty stricken Red Zone – and may have, or lead to, a connection with Ben’s past.
Incorporated comes from Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s Pearl Street Productions, CBS Television Studios and Universal Cable Productions. For more, follow the jump.
Everyone who can guess all the ridiculous cameos in Sharknado 3 gets a shiny penny. Is it ok for me to hate this because I was cut out of the crowd scene for my movie debut? Gah! Damn you Director Anthony C. Ferrante! I’m glad I didn’t have that Sharknado 3 party, or I’d feel like Kevin Costner must have when he first saw The Big Chill. Anyhoo, SyFy’s new summer tradition returns for another round of, nonsensical insanity. Is that even a thing? Sharknado 3 throws any pretense of being a serious movie out the window with the opening homage to Bond movies.
Syfy’s Lavalantula – which airs on Saturday, July 25th – is not only the network’s latest over the top, campy horrorfest, it’s also a reunion for several members of the Police Academy movies of the ’80s – with star Steve Guttenberg leading the charge.
Check out the video, after the jump, in which Guttenberg talks about getting so many Police Academy veterans back together.

The last time Steven Spielberg, Amblin Television and Syfy collaborated on a project it was for the Emmy-winning miniseries Taken.
Now they are working on an adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s classic novel, Brave New World – to be written by Les Bohem – who wrote Taken – penning the script.
Set in a seeming utopian world where there is no war, disease or poverty, Brave New World posits a system where those who do not conform are sent to ‘reservations’ while those who do are rewarded with mind-bending drugs, free sex and rampant consumerism. Then it ask if the price paid for this utopia is too high.
