Pilot: No Ordinary Family

One of the new shows slated for fall that I'm most interested in is "No Ordinary Family" on ABC. What can I say? I'm a sucker for superheroes. The show is about your average American family, but with one hitch - they all develop superpowers.

Normally, this would not be enough to get me interested, but it's written by Greg Berlanti. He created "Everwood," one my favorite WB shows. That show provided such a balanced and emotionally resonant look at a family and common teen problems that still holds up today. So many shows don't know how to handle the teen storyline in an adult show - just look at "V" and how they handle Tyler - that when it's done well it truly stands out.

For more information on the show, check out this interview with Marc Guggenheim, Executive Producer of "No Ordinary Family."
