The first trailer for Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's new sci-fi show is chilling

Mile-high glass sky scrapers towering over low lying slums. Flying cars. Body scanners. Yep, we've got ourselves another dystopian sci-fi, and it looks promisingly close to the knuckle. 

Incorporated, a 13-part series from SyFy backed by executive producers Matt Damon ("Met Daymern") and Ben Affleck, imagines a world 60 years from our own. Faceless corporations have an iron grip on social life, leaving a stark division between those with wealth and those without. One young executive Ben Larson - played by Sean Teale - takes it upon himself to take on the corporation that runs most of the world. 

Throw in some near-future architecture, some awesome gadgets and a bunch of tropes you've almost certainly encountered before and you've got yourself a science fiction series that'll leave you wondering "when" rather than "if". 

Incorporated arrives on SyFy on 30 November
