If you mean they aren't playing it "safe" by having a male and female costars without a romantic intent... sure. But really is that doing something different nowadays?
Certainly not. There are a number of shows today featuring male and female leads whose relationships are strictly and definitively platonic, like Pete and Myka on Warehouse 13. Or the short-lived The Middleman, where the creators clearly portrayed MM as more of a surrogate father to Wendy -- and were thus rather disgusted in their online podcasts when fans kept trying to "ship" those two.
Great example!
