The Alphabet Network picked up the Michael Chiklis-starring series "No Ordinary Family," says The Hollywood Reporter.

The show, which also stars Julie Benz lately of "Dexter," centers on the Powell family, headed by husband and wife Jim and Stephanie (presumably Chiklis and Benz). They're in a run and kind of boring.

During a vacation, they crash land in the Amazon River and emerge with some unusual powers. Now the must try to balance being rather extraordinary with being a family.
