Horror is finally starting to get the recognition that it deserves and production companies have realized that the genre can deliver quality programming as well as a devoted fan base. ABC picked up the new horror series, 666 Park Avenue, and will air it Sundays this Fall. The network just debuted an official trailer and the series looks like it has many secrets that are sure to be dragged out for several seasons–if it actually makes it past its debut.
The show is based on a book series by Gabriella Pierce and has been adapted for the small screen by David Wilcox (Fringe) who will also be an executive producer with Leslie Morganstein (The Vampire Diaries) and Mathew Miller (Chuck, Human Target). The series stars Rachel Taylor, Dave Annabelle, Vanessa Williams, Terry O’Quinn and more.
The synopsis for the upcoming series is as 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.
