They might be darlings of the Oscars, but not even Ben Affleck and Matt Damon could save Incorporated on Syfy.
The dystopian crime drama starring Sean Teale and Allison Miller was canceled, according to The Hollywood Reporter, after just one season, which wrapped a few weeks ago.
The series, which counted Matt Damon and Ben Affleck as executive producers, was set in the year 2074 in a dystopian Milwaukee when many countries have gone bankrupt.
The series was created by brothers David and Alex Pastor, who wrote the 2014 Mexican horror thriller Out of the Dark, and the Ryan Reynolds film Self/less, which earned $33.7 million globally in 2015.
Ten episodes were produced, aired on Syfy beginning Nov. 30. The series, however, failed to attract viewers, never topping 600,000, according to Showbuzz Daily.
Affleck and Damon, who won Oscars in the late 1990s for writing Good Will Hunting, produce a number of projects, including some for television like the streaming reality competition show The Running on Verizon’s go90, as well as Project Greenlight for HBO between 2001 and 2005.
Fans worried that Syfy won’t have much to replace Incorporated with shouldn’t stress too much. Among the series in development are Superstition from Mario Van Peebles, Robert A. Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land, and the Superman-inspired series Krypton.
