Marvel's Damage Control Series In Development At ABC

Damage Control, a comedy set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is currently in development as a television series at ABC, Variety reports.

According to the series description, the Marvel cleaning crew specializes in dealing with the aftermath of the unique fallout from super hero conflicts. They are the ones who are in charge of returning lost ray guns to their rightful owners, help to reschedule a wedding venue after it has been vaporized in a super hero battle or even track down a missing prize African parrot that's been turned to stone or goo. Sometimes the most important super heroes are the ones behind the scenes — and that's who "Damage Control" will follow.

Before the network announced Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., former Cougar Town and Enlisted showrunner Kevin Biegel reportedly was developing a Damage Control project.

"I also flirted for two seconds/talked about trying to do a Damage Control show with a famous cool director that I barely know. We talked about it like four times over e-mail, that's it -- and then Shield [sic] was announced (f yer periods) and we were like, yeah... no one would want to do that."


The series currently being considered was developed by Ben Karlin of The Daily Show and Modern Family, who will executive produce along with Marvel TV's Jeph Loeb.
