In the near future, after the collapse of the government, Corporations have taken over the rule of the planet. If you're one of the billions of common folk you live in run-down squalor in a crowded city sector. However, if you work for the Company you live in gated communities and even have access to private highways. We soon learn that Ben Larson, who works for one of the larger corporations in what was the United States, is an imposter. Five years ago he had infiltrated the system by creating a false identity (he's a computer genius) in hopes of locating his lost childhood love, who was basically sold into slavery to save her family. Now he's married to Laura, whose mother, Elizabeth Krauss (Julia Ormond) is the CEO of the company he works for. This was probably a cover at first but as the show progresses we learn to like this woman. She basically has some of the same ethics as her husband, though neither realize this, because they are so concerned with keeping their real feelings to themselves.Of course things get complicated when someone suspects he's not who he says he is-and also when he learn more about the other characters, which include Theo, the brother of his old girlfriend, and Julian Morse, the head of security who reluctantly does the company's bidding.
This is one of the best science-fiction series I've seen in a long time, primarily because it's so plausible. And because of this, it's terrifying. Also, INCORPORATED reminds me a reminds me a lot of the movie GATTACA, as it has the same sort of feel. Highly recommended.
