New Show: 666 Park Avenue

Lost’s Terry O’Quinn stars in 666 Park Avenue, the new supernatural TV series, alongside Vanessa Williams, Dave Annable, Rachael Taylor, Mercedes Masohn, Robert Buckley, Helena Mattsson and Erik Palladino. 666 Park Avenue begins on ABC this Autumn.

If you could make one wish, what would it be? And what would you do to get it? At 666 Park Avenue, all of your dreams and burning desires can come true: wealth, sex, love, power, even revenge. But just be careful what you wish for, because the price you pay… could be your soul. Welcome to The Drake, the premiere apartment building on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

Owned by the mysterious Gavin Doran (O’Quinn) and his sexy wife Olivia (Williams), The Drake is home to dozens of residents who are unaware they’re living in the dark embrace of supernatural forces. They think their dreams are all coming true, only to find they’ve been lured into making, what feels like, a deal with the Devil. When a young Mid-western couple – Jane Van Veen (Taylor) and Henry Martin (Annable) – is hired to manage The Drake, they soon discover that evil, obsession, and manipulation has a home.

I’m getting ‘The Devil’s Advocate’ vibes from this. I like/find it interesting that ABC are branching out into these genre shows. Could the argument be made that TV bosses, reminded by the continued success of things such as (ugh!)Twilight, have finally realized that women like scifi/supernatural/fantasy stories too? (Not that this show ?will be specifically aimed at women, it’s just the assumption I’m going with based on ABC’s usual target demographic).
