Deadline Hollywood reports that Marvel Television has received a put pilot order from ABC, for its live-action, 30 minute comedy, Damage Control, based on the comics of the same name.
Put pilots, by definition, involve financial penalties if not aired, so they nearly always do. Developed for TV by Ben Karlin (Modern Family), Marvel’s Damage Control pilot should join Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD and Marvel’s Agent Carter at the alphabet network.
Here’s a glimpse into Marvel’s Damage Control universe, from Marvel:
When the superhuman community throws down in a neighborhood, the damages can be astronomical. However, the Manhattan based engineering and construction company, Damage Control, are here to clean up the mess and rebuild the property to the way it was. Considering the amount of superhuman battles there are, and with virtually no competition, Damage Control is a definite money maker.
The company head is Anne Marie Hoag, and all other executives, account executives and nearly three hundred employees hang on her every word. […] Not only do they work for the superhuman community, but Damage Control also works with government, private companies such as Stark Enterprises, and they will even work with individuals on a case by case basis. One of their smaller clients is that of Josie’s Bar, which has had it share of superhuman bar fights thanks to Daredevil, in particular.
Other members of the Damage Control team include Henry Ackerdson who is Vice President in charge of Marketing, Robin Chapel who is the Traffic Officer, Albert Cleary, Comptroller, and Eugene Strausser who is the Head of Research and Development. One of the account executives who deal with cases whether they are by an individual or a company is John Porter. Other company personnel include the Head Foreman Lenny Ballinger. There is also a receptionist named Anne, intern John “Bart” Rozum, and security guard, Jay.
What do you think? If you’ve read the comics, can it play on live-action TV? Do you plan to watch Marvel’s Damage Control?
Sound and looks interesting, worth a look at
