With the broadcasters readying for their upfront presentations next week, the pick-ups are coming fast and furious, B&C reports.

NBC said it’s picking up "Perfect Couples," the sixth scripted series to get an order from the network. The show will follow three couples as they try to create a perfect relationship, and its executive producers are Jon Pollack of "30 Rock" and Scott Silveri of "Friends."

ABC, meanwhile, ordered "No Ordinary Family," about a family that discovers they have superpowers.

FX has ordered pilot production of "Wilfred," based on an Australian comedy of the same name about a man with a pot-smoking dog, played by a man in a scruffy dog costume. Deadline.com adds that FX has decided to pass on another comedy project, called "Sweat Shop."

And Fox has picked up the sitcom "Wilde Kingdom." According to Fox411, "The series marks ‘Arrested Development’ creator Mitch Hurwitz and star Will Arnett’s return to Fox, which canceled the cult favorite in 2006. Arnett co-wrote the [‘Wilde’] pilot and stars as a Beverly Hills
jerk who falls for a tree-hugging woman (Keri Russell) opposed to his lifestyle.
