ABC's new superhero drama No Ordinary Family, starring Julie Benz and Michael Chiklis as parents of a family given super-powers, has been picked up by digital channel Watch for its UK premiere.
Alexandra Finlay, UKTV Head of Acquisitions:
"We're thrilled to extend our relationship with Disney with this new deal. No Ordinary Family’s premiere last Tuesday was ABC's most successful new season launch to date, and as must-see TV it's the perfect title to launch Watch's exciting 2011 schedule."Interesting to see a channel like Watch grab this show, which is an unusual but welcome move for them. I was expecting this series to become a Sky1 purchase or perhaps something for E4 to sit alongside Smallville.
The bad news is Watch aren't planning to show No Ordinary Family until January 2011...
