666 Park Avenue trailer makes a deal

ABC has released a treailer for its upcoming demonic, big-mystery serial 666 Park Avenue.

When a man agrees to be the new manager for an upscale apartment building in New York, he and his wife move into an amazing apartment high up in the clouds. It doesn’t take long for them to realize that sinister things are happening in and around the building.

It seems as though it will be clear to the audience right away that 666 Park Avenue is the devil’s apartment building, and yes, he’s apparently dealing for souls.

Terry O’Quinn plays the part of the devilish owner of the building. Of course, we haven’t seen O’Quinn do anything serious since LOST, but in that show he displayed a rare range. Hopefully he’ll be bringing that same range to this show.

The official synopsis is thus:

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 starts this fall on ABC.
