UPDATE: I’ve got the actual first episode posted: http://illuminatiwatcher.com/?p=3849
New series on ABC this Fall called 666 Park Avenue. Looks like a mix of The Shining and Devil’s Advocate. We’ll see if ABC can botch it all up, these mainstream channels usually can’t get it right (as is evident by the pop music playing in the background of the trailer), but this looks more promising than most. But then again, looking at the cast and crew for the show it might be garbage, I’m not seeing a lot of great work on the list…
Welcome to The Drake, Park Avenue’s most devilish address, where evil, obsession, and supernatural occurences are included in the rent.
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.
666 Park Avenue stars Rachael Taylor (Charlie’s Angels, Grey’s Anatomy, Transformers) as Jane Van Veen, Dave Annable (Brothers & Sisters, Reunion) as Henry Martin, Robert Buckley (One Tree Hill, Lipstick Jungle) as Brian Leonard, Mercedes Masöhn (The Finder, Chuck, Three Rivers) as Louise Leonard, Helena Mattsson (Iron Man 2, Nikita, Desperate Housewives) as Alexis Blume, Samantha Logan as Nona Clark, with Vanessa Williams (Desperate Housewives, Ugly Betty, Shaft, Soul Food) as Olivia Doran and Terry O’Quinn (Lost, Millennium, Hawaii Five-0, Alias, The West Wing, Jag) as Gavin Doran.
