We knew that ABC’s sexy genre thriller “666 Park Avenue”, which will air at 10:00 PM on Sundays. And now we know which Sunday it starts – September 30th. That’s when we’ll find out if this show has some true horror bona-fides (not likely) or is full of hot air (likely). I’m not hating – I’m just doing the math on the amount of decent network shows these days (their quality seems to be dipping as cable’s quality rises).
“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.”
