ABC Orders Marvel’s ‘Damage Control’ to Pilot, and it’s About Time

GameStop, Inc.


I’ve been saying for years that Marvel needs to put Damage Control on the screen, I even wrote about it last year saying that it would be a great spin-off from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.:

“two completely separate shows that share thematic links, Damage Control being called in by S.H.I.E.L.D. to clean up after a big battle the Avengers had with A.I.M. forces, or repairing a building damaged in a Hydra terror plot. Fin Fang Foom sat on the Stock Exchange? Call in Damage Control. It may seem like a silly concept, but if handled correctly it really could be amazing and fun.

The basic cast of the comics are pretty cool, especially for what was basically a joke that went on for too long, but if you fleshed them out a bit like S.H.I.E.L.D., you could even sneak in comic references or smaller characters that aren’t being used elsewhere, the sky’s the limit.  How about Damage Control being sued, and She-Hulk’s alter-ego Jennifer Walters showing up to represent them? Hell, she could even be a regular cast member, because trust me, Damage Control would need a lawyer on hand.

How about a billboard in the background for Heroes For Hire? What a great nod to the upcoming Netflix produced Luke Cage and Iron Fist series’. There are so many directions Damage Control could go. If they handled the comedy, with just enough drama to make it interesting, Damage Control would be a really great show, and a wonderful, more lighthearted counter to Agents Of  S.H.I.E.L.D. This is the perfect type of show for S.H.I.E.L.D. showrunner Joss Whedon, with a lot of the elements that have made his shows such fan favorites.”

I stand by my statements, and I guess ABC is feeling the same way, as EW is reporting that they have ordered a script and a put-pilot for a half-hour single-cam sitcom tentatively called Damage Control. They must be sure of themselves, because a put-pilot means if it doesn’t go on screen they have to pay a penalty.  Marvel’s Damage Control was developed by Modern Family‘s Ben Karlin, and he will be executive producer alongside David Miner and Marvel’s head of TV Jeph Loeb. 

That’s the only information we have right now, but we’ll keep following this story.
