No Ordinary Family, a live-action series about a family with super powers, will air on ABC on Tuesdays at 8 p.m., according to the new season schedule released by the network.

The series stars Michael Chiklis, who played Ben Grimm/the Thing in the two Fantastic Four movies and is the creator of IDW Publishing's The Pantheon comic book.

Here's how the network describes No Ordinary Family:

"The Powells are about to go from ordinary to extraordinary. After 16 years of marriage, Jim and Stephanie's relationship lacks the spark it once had, and their family life now consists of balancing work and their two children, leaving little time for family bonding. During a family vacation set up by Jim in an attempt to reconnect, their plane crashes into the Amazon River. But this is where the fun starts for the Powells, as they soon discover that something's not quite right. Each of them now possesses unique and distinct superpowers. But saving and savoring their family life will be equally important, as they try to find purpose for their new powers and embark on a journey to find out what defines and unifies them. The Powells are a totally relatable family who happen to be a little bit amazing."

Chiklis stars as Jim Powell, Julie Benz as Stephanie Powell, Romany Malco as George St. Cloud, Tate Donovan as Mitch McCutcheon, Autumn Reeser as Katie Andrews, Christina Chang as Yvonne Cho, Kay Panabaker as Daphne Powell and Jimmy Bennett as JJ Powell.

The pilot was written and executive-produced by Jon Feldman. The series is executive-produced by Feldman, Greg Berlanti, Morgan Wandell and David Semel, who also directed the pilot. Joe Hartwick, Jr. serves as producer. No Ordinary Family is from ABC Studios.
