Christina Chang and Tate Donovan are not entirely exiting “No Ordinary Family,” the ABC superhero-themed family show slated for a fall 2010 premiere.
ABC confirms to Zap2it that “their roles are still going to be in the first episode. It’s more of a situation where creatively there’s nowhere for the characters to go … there’s nothing to write for them, it’s not about acting abilities. They’re not exiting entirely, you might see them again in other episodes.”
Chang was cast as Yvonne Cho, a cop who works Michael Chiklis’ Jim Powell (the father of the superhero family), while Tate Donovan was cast as Mitch McCutcheon, a mysterious pilot. The show focuses on the changes the Powell family experiences after their plane crashes in the Amazon River.
“No Ordinary Family” will air on Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on ABC starting in the fall. Check out our preview clip here.
