TO CELEBRATE THE SERIES PREMIERE OF ABC’S “No Ordinary Family,”

TEST YOUR OWN SUPER SPEED AND SUPER STRENGTH IN NEW YORK’S

TIMES SQUARE ON TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28

In celebration of the premiere of “No Ordinary Family,” ABC will create a family friendly, highly visual and interactive experience in New York’s Times Square on Tuesday, September 28, from 6:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m., ET. “No Ordinary Family” premieres TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Just as the Powell family on the new television series have discovered their own unique and distinct super powers, other families will have the chance to demonstrate their own strength by seeing if they can lift a car off the ground or can run at the speed of lightning.

To demonstrate their “super strength,” participants will go from ordinary to extraordinary as they lift an SUV off the ground. Everyone will receive a picture of their “super strength” power as well as a card directing them to NoOrdinaryEvent.com, where they can download their photos and share them with friends and family.

To demonstrate “Super Speed,” participants will speed off as a projection screen behind them shows just how fast they can run, with trees and buildings whizzing by at lightning speed. To commemorate this “No Ordinary” feat, participants will receive a card directing them to NoOrdinaryEvent.com, where they can download their video experience and share it with friends and family.

Everyone will receive “No Ordinary Family” T-shirts that proclaim just how extraordinary moms, dads, kids or the whole family really are for participating in the event.

About “No Ordinary Family

The Powells are about to go from ordinary to extraordinary. After 16 years of marriage, Jim feels disconnected from his workaholic wife, Stephanie, and two teenage children, Daphne and JJ. To encourage family bonding time, Jim decides the family will join Stephanie on her business trip to South America. When their plane crashes into the Amazon River, they barely enjoy a moment to celebrate their survival before returning to the grind of everyday life. But they will soon realize that their lives have been forever changed. Each member of the family starts to show signs of new, unique and distinct super powers. Will their newfound abilities finally bring them together or push them further apart?
