The first trailer for ABC’s 666 Park Avenue doesn’t hold back on supernatural quirks and has us wondering..just what is down in the basement. And what’s up with Terry O’ Quinn!?
Interesting… It certainly has a quirky element, but there seems to be plenty of menance on hand, courtesy of the ‘wish fulfilment’ that the apartment building apparently provides — at a cost. There’s a deeper ‘good versus evil’ premise at the center of 666 Park Ave, so that should provide the overarching hook. Time will tell how far the show will go in the seriable stakes, but this is one we’ll be keeping an eye on.
666 Park Avenue will air Sundays at 10pm on ABC this fall. Check out the cast photos. Story outline follows:
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.
