[14.49 - French Time] ABC unveils today its 2010-2011 schedule, with six new dramas.

From previous season, FlashForward will never be the next Lost and now viewers thirsty for "high concept" will jump to NBC and The Event. V will never be next to Lost again, we'll see how the struggling remake of Kenneth Johnson's classic fares when its season two starts in November. THR's James Hibberd reports that the network wants to give V enough production time before its premiere, and could use freshman superhero drama No Ordinary Family as a lead-in on tuesday nights once DWTS is finished (http://livefeed.hollywoodreporter.com/2010/05/abc-2010-fall-schedule.html).

In No ordinary family, Jim and Stephanie Powell (Michael Chiklis and Julie Benz) are trapped in a routine between their work and their two children. During a family trip set up by Jim in an attempt to reconnect, their plane crashes into the Amazon River. After this accident the Powell family members discover that each of them now possesses superpowers. The plane crash idea is very "Fred Silverman's ABC" and sounds like the basis of The Champions (1968-1969). We'll see if it's a live-action The Incredibles without all the fun.

No network television without procedurals and cop shows. Dana Delany (Desperate Housewives) is a former neurosurgeon turned medical examiner in Body of Proof. More interesting, Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos) as a cop in Detroit 1-8-7 because Imperioli was the only watchable element in Life on Mars US. Cops... because CBS can't have them all, can't they?
