10) Damage Control
When’s it start? Most likely the 2016/2017 season on ABC.
Who’s involved? No cast have been announced yet, but comedy writer and producer Ben Karlin is attached as executive producer and is writing the pilot. Karlin’s previous work includes Modern Family, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.
What’s it about? As you might have guessed from Karlin’s resume, Damage Control will be a half-hour comedy show set in the Marvel world. Based on the comic series of the same name, it will follow the unfortunate folk who have to clear up the city after the superheroes have come along and trashed it.
Verdict: Nothing has been heard about this one since last October, and since then Agent Carter and Most Wanted have been cancelled – so it’s possible Damage Control has been canned, as well. Assuming it hasn’t, though, this will hopefully be a fun subversion of Marvel’s usual TV shows. Maybe it will even feature cameos from some actual superheroes?
