Earlier this week, we discussed one of Marvel's under-utilized teams: Damage Control. The gods of television must have been listening because according to Deadline, Damage Control is getting their own television show on ABC.

This half an hour, live-action comedy series received a pilot commitment from ABC and is being developed for TV by Ben Karlin, formally of Daily Show and Colbert Report. The show will follow the team of overworked and underpaid clean up crew from the Marvel universe who has to deal with the aftermath of all these gigantic battles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Karlin will write the script for the pilot. He will also executive produce alongside David Miner and Jeph Loeb.

We'll keep you updated as more develops about this project.
