Kyle’s Choice

incorporatedsmallThe new Syfy series Incorporated doesn’t premiere until Wednesday November 30, but today Syfy is offering an early preview of the first episode at Incorporated.Syfy.com. The series is set in the year 2074, when climate change has ravished the planet and large corporations control 90% of the world’s natural resources. Society has been split into two classes: the rich live under the walled protection of the Green Zone and work for the corporations, while the poor live in the slums of the Red Zone, fending for themselves. Ben Larson (Sean Teale, Reign), a young executive at Spiga Biotech, has concealed his true identity for years, pretending to be a company man in order to rise up the ranks. He has a secret personal agenda, but in order to succeed, he will need to gain access to corporate perks only available to executives on the 40th floor. Ben’s wife Laura (Allison Miller, Terra Nova) is a successful plastic surgeon who doesn’t really get along with her mother Elizabeth (Julia Ormond, Mad Men), the head of Spiga’s US operations. The company takes corporate espionage very seriously, and Spiga’s Head of Security, Julian (Dennis Haysbert, 24), is one of the most feared men at the company. The series also stars Eddie Ramos (Teen Wolf) as Theo, the younger brother of a love from Ben’s past.

The premiere sets up a really interesting futuristic world filled with cool visuals and technology. However, despite all these advancements, the world is quite divided: the Green Zone controls the wealth, but it also feels very cold and sterile; while the Red Zone is dangerous, run-down, and filled with cheap, exploitative entertainment designed to attract wealthy visitors. The look and premise of the series reminds me a lot of the film Gattaca (which I also enjoyed). I look forward to checking out more of this series in a few weeks.

Check out the early release of the premiere tonight at Incorporated.Syfy.com.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Speechless, Modern Family, black-ish, Designated Survivor, Survivor, Criminal Minds, Blindspot, Lethal Weapon, Empire, Arrow, Frequency, Undercover, Worst Cooks in America, You’re the Worst, Stan Against Evil, Younger, and Impastor.
