Second week of the US network new Fall season. Tonight No Ordinary Family premieres on ABC.

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, Daphne (Kay Panabaker) and JJ (Jimmy Bennett). During a family vacation 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), a Brit spy-fi/adventure series produced by ITC. But No Ordinary Family, created by Greg Berlanti and Jon Harmon Feldman, definitely looks like a live-action version of The Incredibles, or Heroes meets whatever family dramedy you want.
