Former executive producer of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, Ben Karlin is developing a new show called Damage Control for Marvel TV.
The half-hour live action comedy will follow the clean-up crew of the Marvel universe. Deadline describes them like this:
Specializing in dealing with the aftermath of the unique fallout from superhero conflicts, they’re 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 team has never had their own ongoing comic book, but has appeared often in Marvel stories since the late ’80s, including making an appearance in Civil War.

Damage Control joins other live-action Marvel shows Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,Agent Carter, and the planned SHIELD spin-off Marvel’s Most Wanted that centers on Mockingbird and Lance Hunter.
