The network announced today that it has picked up No Ordinary Family starring Michael Chiklis (The Shield) –  a drama about a family with amazing new abilities. Besides Chiklis, the series also stars Julie Benz (Dexter) and Tate Donovan (Damages). It’s executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Jon Feldman, Morgan Wandell and David Semel.

Earlier today, Heroes co-star Greg Grunberg posted an update on his Twitter account saying ” haven’t heard anything official re: Heroes for next season. Hope it gets picked up.” 

All the broadcast nets will announce their fall lineups next week in New York.
