Joining ABC's solid looking line-up of dramas on Sunday nights this fall is 666 Park Avenue, a series based on Gabriella Pierce's series of books. 666 Park Avenue puts Lost's Terry O'Quinn back at ABC in a starring role as the mysterious owner of a New York City building with a supernatural-twist. Check out the trailer and details ahead!
In addition to O'Quinn, the series also keeps Vanessa Williams (Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives) on screen at ABC. 666 Park Avenue looks like it has a sort of American Horror Story feel to it as it begins with a young couple moving in to a seemingly amazing building only to find there are dark and creepy things going on there. Except instead of death being the focus, it seems more supernatural/demonic-themed. And it's set in a luxurious Manhattan building rather than a big old house.
At the ominous address of 666 Park Avenue, anything you desire can be yours. Everyone has needs, desires and ambition. For the residents of The Drake, these will all be met, courtesy of the building's mysterious owner, Gavin Doran (Terry O'Quinn). But every Faustian contract comes with a price. When Jane Van Veen (Rachael Taylor) and Henry Martin (Dave Annable), an idealistic young couple from the Midwest, are offered the opportunity to manage the historic building, they not only fall prey to the machinations of Doran and his mysterious wife, Olivia (Vanessa Williams), but unwittingly begin to experience the shadowy, supernatural forces within the building that imprison and endanger the lives of the residents inside. Sexy, seductive and inviting, The Drake maintains a dark hold over all of its residents, tempting them through their ambitions and desires, in this chilling new drama that's home to an epic struggle of good versus evil.
The trailer introduces us to the couple and the building, which is gorgeous. And then we get to see some of the dark and twisty things that take place inside 666 Park Avenue…
Luxury seems to be a theme for ABC on Sunday nights. 666 Park Avenue airs after the soapy drama Revenge, which returns for its second season to it's new night. It also seems fitting that the show should air on Sunday nights, the same night Once Upon a Time airs. Though this one is set a bit later in the night, for those viewers who may like their magic a bit darker.
