AceShowbiz - ABC and Marvel are teaming up again, this time for a comedy series. The network has bought a script for a half-hour, single camera sitcom tentatively titled "Damage Control" about the overworked, underpaid, clean up crew in the Marvel Universe. The live-action project has landed a put pilot commitment.
The sitcom will follow the Marvel cleaning crew which specializes in dealing with the aftermath of the unique fallout from superhero 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 superhero battle, or even track down a missing prize African parrot that's been turned to stone or goo.
The crew was first introduced in 1988 and has since had a recurring presence on Marvel Comics. Damage Control has four limited series of its own to date.
The project is hailed from former "Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report" executive producer Ben Karlin, who will pen the script and serve as executive producer along with David Miner and Jeph Loeb.
Should ABC pick up "Damage Control" to series, it will join other ABC/Marvel series "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." and "Marvel's Agent Carter". The network has reportedly also ordered a pilot to "Marvels' Most Wanted" centering on %cAdrianne Palicki%'s and %cNick Blood%'s "S.H.I.E.L.D." characters Bobbi Morse and Lance Hunter respectively.
