NBC’s “Heroes” may be gone for good, but that doesn’t mean we won’t see ordinary people coming to terms with extraordinary powers next season.
ABC has given picked up “No Ordinary Family” for next season.
The series will star Michael Chicklis from the “Fantastic Four” movies and “The Shield” as well as Julie Benz from “Dexter” and “Buffy, the Vampire Slayer.”
Here’s the official log line from ABC on the show.
The Powells are about to go from ordinary to extraordinary. After 16 years of marriage, Jim and Stephanie’s relationship lacked the spark it once had, and their family life now consists of balancing work and their two children; leaving little time for family bonding. During a family vacation set up by Jim in an attempt to reconnect, their plane crashes into the Amazon River. But this is where the fun starts for the Powells as they soon discover that something’s not quite right. Each of them now possesses unique and distinct super powers. But saving and savoring their family life will be equally important as they try to find purpose for their new power and embark on a journey to find out what defines and unifies them. The Powells are a totally relatable family that happens to be a little bit amazing.
