Ramos joins Sean Teale and Georgina Haig in the futuristic pilot, which is set in 2062 in a world where climate change has ravaged the planet, ethical boundaries have been redrawn and American cities have become a mix of the luxurious and the medieval.

Haig will star as Laura, who is married to Ben (Teale), a rising star in a mega-corporation called Chrysalis who is determined to climb the rickety, bloodstained ladder of success. Laura is a successful plastic surgeon who’s also the daughter of Ben’s boss. While Ben and Laura make their home in the lush, manicured Green Zone of the well-to-do, Theo (Ramos) dwells in the dangerous, poverty-stricken Red Zone and might provide a surprising connection to Ben’s past.

Ramos has appeared on several television series including Teen Wolf, NCIS: Los Angeles and Parenthood.

Created by David and Alex Pastor, who wrote and will direct the pilot, Incorporated will explore the growing influence of corporations and private interests in Washington, the slow but steady dismantling of the public sector and the increase of an amazing amount of wealth by an ever-shrinking minority.

The drama hails from Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s Pearl Street Productions, CBS Television Studios and Universal Cable Productions.
