Marvel's Damage Control in development as comedy series at ABC

Marvel Television is looking beyond one-hour action dramas: The Hollywood Reporter says ABC has ordered a pilot script for a half-hour comedy series based on "Damage Control". Ben Karlin, a longtime writer for "The Daily Show," "The Colbert Report" and "Modern Family," is developing the series for the network.

Damage Control was introduced to Marvel Comics in 1988, co-created by the late Dwayne McDuffie and longtime comics veteran Ernie Colón. The concept in both the comics and the prospective TV series involves a construction company that cleans up the collateral damage caused by superhero-related incidents. There have been four "Damage Control" miniseries in Marvel history, with the most recent published in 2008.
I'm 99% sure it'll be a part of the MCU.

The article doesn't outright state it, but I find it hard to believe Marvel wouldn't want to integrate it into the existing MCU. I mean, this isn't DC we're talking about here. ;)

Plus, it serves as a potentially awesome counterpoint to the films and even AoS and the Netflix shows. Plus, given Marvel's habit of using humor in their films, a show set in the MCU with a heavy comedic tone should be fun.

Plus there's a wealth of large scale disasters that've happened in the MCU already that could at least be used as fodder for offhand comments.
