We’ve heard about ABC’s upcoming supernatural series ‘666 Park Avenue’, from Alloy Entertainment. Seems like an odd choice for ABC, but they do have ‘The River’ so perhaps they want to add more genre to their line up?
The show has found its leading man; with ‘Lost’ star Terry O’Quinn. O’Quinn has just wrapped up a very successful arc on ‘Hawaii Five-O’ and TV seems to be the place for him. Of course us genre fans know O’Quinn well, he was THE STEPFATHER after all, and in the great hidden gem PIN. Seems like a solid choice, the man is a great actor and can make anything work, I’d say it’s a good score.
The series is based on the skein of Gabriella Pierce books (being adapted by David Wilcox), the synopsis: "666 Park Avenue" centers on an innocent couple from the mid-west that moves to New York and gets hired to be resident managers of a building on the Upper East Side. There, unbeknownst to the couple, the residents have all unwittingly made deals with the Devil to have their deepest needs, ambitions and desires fulfilled.
We will definitely be keeping our eyes open for more casting news!
