You don't want that. You are looking for dh_gencontrol(1):
dh_gencontrol is a debhelper program that is responsible for
generating control files, and installing them into the DEBIAN
directory with the proper permissions.
Note that it won't be enough; you should really look into existing
packages to see how it is done.
