I haven't actually read the book, only the synopsis and it looks interesting. From the looks of things, I'm pretty confident it'll do well. At least its the only show on their 2013 pilot fall line up that looks remotely interesting. And no, I'm not watching Nashville even if Hayden is starring in the show. LOL.

Keck's Exclusives: New Bodies Check in to ABC's 666 Park Avenue

With the corpse count at New York's luxurious Drake Hotel expected to grow devilishly high, expect a Love Boat-like rotation of guest stars to come and go through the turnstile on ABC's new fall drama, 666 Park Avenue. The dark mystery series, which stars Lost's Terry O'Quinn, Desperate Housewives' Vanessa Williams and Brothers and Sisters' Dave Annable, has just checked in three new slabs of fresh meat.

Aubrey Dollar, whose credits include Guiding Light, Women's Murder Club and Weeds, will play the recurring role of Annie, an obituary writer who yearns to be a real journalist. She'll first pop up in episode four.

Israeli actress Mili Avital, who had a recurring role on Damages, will play a lonely hearts woman who pines for romance and harbors a dark twisted secret.

And Mike Doyle (Oz, Law & Order: SVU and A Gifted Man) will play Frank Alpern, who'll prove to be quite a powerful adversary to O'Quinn's evil Gavin. He'll first debut in the second episode and will also recur, much to Gavin's chagrin.

I feel like if this is a hit, the cast will be a big reason why. Like I said before, it's basically ABC All-Stars... O'Quinn because of LOST, Williams because of Ugly Betty and DH, Annable because of Brothers and Sisters, and Rachel Taylor with her part on Grey's Anatomy and with Charlie's Angels last season. She's kind of the wild card, but I think ABC wants her to succeed. Like CBS with Alex O'Loughlin. Hopefully this ends up being for her what Hawaii Five-0 was for him.

I hope so. Hopefully their collective powers will be able to get this show 5 seasons since that is basically how long each of their shows (minus Rachel) lasted.

I think it has potential to. Especially with the line-up they've set up on Sundays.

I'm more worried about Last Resort being on Thursdays at 8.

Ugly Betty was the last show to make 8mill in that time slot. I wonder if ABC realizes that they have canceled every show in the past 3-4 yrs that has been put in those 2 time slots.

Well, at least this one makes sense in terms of the line-up on sunday nights. But Last Resort as a lead-in to Grey's Anatomy? I don't see that working out too well.

Episode 1 "Pilot" Press Release:
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Quote:
PREMIERE

ENTER THE SEDUCTIVE WORLD OF THE DRAKE, WHERE YOUR DEEPEST DESIRES AND BURNING AMBITIONS WILL BE FULFILLED FOR A PRICE -- AND MAYBE YOUR SOUL -- ON THE PREMIERE OF "666 PARK AVENUE," SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 30 ON ABC


What would you do to have everything you desire? Step inside "666 Park Avenue," New York's most seductive address. We all have some burning need, desire and ambition. For the residents of The Drake, the premier apartment building on Manhattan's Upper East Side, these will all be met - for a price - courtesy of the building's mysterious owner, Gavin Doran. But be careful what you wish for, because the price you may pay is your soul. ABC's wickedly sexy and spine-tingling new drama about fulfilling our deepest desires, "666 Park Avenue," will premiere SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 30 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET).

In the premiere episode, "Pilot," when Jane Van Veen (Rachael Taylor) and Henry Martin (Dave Annable), an idealistic young couple from the Midwest, arrive in New York City, the glamorous center of industry and media, they are offered the opportunity to manage the historic Drake by its wealthy owners, Gavin (Terry O'Quinn) and Olivia Duran (Vanessa Williams) - and the seduction begins. Jane, a small town girl with big ambitions, always knew she wanted to be an architect. Henry, a member of the Mayor's staff, is grounded, intelligent and tenacious. They are lured by the intoxicating lifestyle of New York's wealthy elite. But they soon wonder what they've gotten themselves into when they unwittingly bump into the dark embrace of the building's mysterious supernatural forces which endanger the lives of their residents.

Gavin, who has many skeletons in his own closet, is at the height of his world and commands the dark power of The Drake. Olivia, his beautiful but enigmatic, supportive wife, wears her elegance, wealth and position in society like armor... but cracks will slowly be revealed.

Jane and Henry are not the only ones to fall prey to the machinations of Gavin and Olivia. There are other residents, including Brian Leonard (Robert Buckley), a young playwright pining for his early success and promise. Brian's wife, Louise (Mercedes Masšhn), is a rising hot star in the world of fashion photography. Alexis Blume (Helena Mattsson) is a troubled young woman who is the picture of obsession -- what is her real connection to Gavin, and what part will she play in Brian and Louise's life? Tony DeMeo (Erik Palladino), The Drake's doorman, is the eyes and ears of the building. And then there is 14-year-old Nona Clark (Samantha Logan), who has a blossoming psychic ability, allowing her to look into the future of her fellow Drake occupants.

Sexy, enticing and captivating, home to an epic struggle of good versus evil, The Drake maintains a dark hold over all of its tenants in this new, chilling drama, tempting them through their ambitions and desires.

"666 Park Avenue" stars Rachael Taylor ("Charlie's Angels," "Grey's Anatomy," "Transformers") as Jane Van Veen, Dave Annable ("Brothers & Sisters," "Reunion") as Henry Martin, Mercedes Masšhn ("The Finder," "Chuck," "Three Rivers") as Louise Leonard, Robert Buckley ("One Tree Hill," "Lipstick Jungle") as Brian Leonard, Helena Mattsson ("Iron Man 2," "Nikita," "Desperate Housewives") as Alexis Blume, Erik Palladino ("U-571," "ER," "Over There") as Tony DeMeo and Samantha Logan as Nona Clark, with Vanessa Williams ("Desperate Housewives," "Ugly Betty," "Shaft," "Soul Food") as Olivia Doran and Terry O'Quinn ("Lost," "Millennium," "Hawaii Five-0," "Alias," "The West Wing," "Jag") as Gavin Doran.

Guest starring are James Waterston as John Barlow, Lucy Walters as Mary Barlow and Steven Skybell as Malcolm Hartwell.

Based on the book series by Gabriella Pierce, "666 Park Avenue" was created by David Wilcox ("Fringe," "Life on Mars"), and is executive-produced by Matt Miller ("Chuck," "Human Target"), Wilcox, Gina Girolamo ("The Secret Circle," "The Lying Game") and Leslie Morgenstein ("Gossip Girl," "The Vampire Diaries," "Pretty Little Liars," "The Lying Game," "The Secret Circle," "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants"). The pilot for "666 Park Avenue" was written by Wilcox and directed by Alex Graves ("Fringe," "The West Wing"), who was also an executive producer. "666 Park Avenue" is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Alloy Entertainment ("Gossip Girl," "The Vampire Diaries," "Pretty Little Liars") and Warner Bros. Television.

Why ABC's 666 Park Avenue Is Not American Horror Story Lite
by Natalie Abrams

With the success of American Horror Story on cable, it's not surprising that broadcast networks would take another stab (no pun intended) at bringing a new horror story to the masses.

ABC will attempt to do just that on Sunday nights with 666 Park Avenue, a mystery drama based very loosely on the Gabriella Pierce novel of the same name. In the series, an innocent Midwestern couple, Henry (Dave Annable) and Jane (Rachael Taylor), get hired as resident managers of a The Drake, an Upper East Side apartment building in New York owned by Gavin (Terry O'Quinn) and Olivia Doran (Vanessa Williams). Unbeknownst to them, the residents have all made deals with The Devil to have their desires fulfilled.

But 666 will separate itself very quickly from Horror Story — and not just because broadcast standards are a bit more strict. Executive producer Matt Miller tells TVGuide.com that 666 is more of a psychological thriller, looking at how the residents of The Drake will do anything to get their dreams and desires fulfilled. So, will new residents Jane and Henry fall victim to Gavin's games? Get the scoop on the new series below:

The pilot is very different from the novel. Will there be any elements from the book that you will eventually include?
Miller: No. There's nothing at all from the book. I know [series creator] David Wilcox read the book, as a cursory pass at it. It was really more about like the general concept and the title that everyone at ABC was interested in. He obviously went off and came up with his own world and his own story.

So then no witchcraft for Jane?
Miller: There is no witchcraft. I mean we'll see how long we last. You squeeze a couple of seasons out of this, maybe we will be reading books and anything else we can draw any material from. But at this point right now, we're just sort of sticking with this new template and the new story of Henry and Jane arriving at The Drake without any of the witchcraft stuff — more of just the wish fulfillment and the kind of Faustian bargain kind of stuff.

How difficult is it to find the balance of horror on a broadcast series?
Miller: It is a challenge. It's not a genre typically done on TV. There's two kinds of horror: There's the more aggressive kind of slashery stuff, which this certainly isn't. Then there's more psychological horror, which is what this show falls into. In order to do that, you want to build suspense with creepier moments and things like that, which, usually, [with a] TV audience, people want to get to the next thing really quickly. It is tough to find that balance and trying to actually do something that's genuinely scary while at the same time also fitting into a network mold.

Some people have been calling the show American Horror Story lite. How do you respond to that?
Miller: Oh, we find that very offensive. American Horror Story is actually a different kind of horror than we're playing with here. What we're trying to do is something that's a lot more of a psychological horror — a lot more of a throwback show like Rosemary's Baby or The Shining. Whereas, American Horror Story may be more overt and more contemporary horror.

Though viewers may now fear being sucked into a wall.
Miller: The Judas hole! How about the elevator? You may never stick your hand into an elevator again as it's closing.

You guys have made the decision to never say the D-word, aka Devil, in the pilot. Is that going to continue or is there a point where you have to drop it?
Miller: No. We really want to play with what audience's expectations are. We're never going to say "Devil" or "deal with The Devil" within the show. It's always off the nose. It's like a guy that is seemingly devil-like, but that someone that can make all your dreams come true, but like with any sort of Faustian bargain or any kind of deal with The Devil, there is a downside to that and there is a price to pay for having your dreams fulfilled. That's sort of, in a broad stroke, what he does and what we're playing with. Certainly The Drake, the building itself, has a supernatural quality. What we're trying to do is to have most, if not all, of our supernatural and horror stuff actually take place within the confines of the building.

To the point about mentioning him being The Devil, he's not necessarily The Devil. We're playing him as someone that is flesh and blood. We have an episode with a scene where he's shaving and cuts himself. We want people to see that he can actually bleed, that he can hurt. Because if he is this omniscient, immortal, controlling character, then it makes it not quite as interesting and he's not quite as vulnerable. We always like to see him as more of a Tony Soprano-type than a mustache-twirling devil.

Right. If he can't be killed, what's the point of rooting for Jane and Henry?
Miller: Yeah. We don't want him to be able to wiggle his nose and do anything he wants. We want to see this character — and Terry O'Quinn plays him fabulously — who is somebody that can fulfill supernatural desires and needs and things like that, but at the same time is vulnerable. He loves his wife more than anything. He can get hurt not only physically, but emotionally. So, the more humanized that character becomes, a little bit more interesting and a little bit more of a relatable villain he can be.

How aware is Olivia of what her husband does?
Miller: That's something we played with quite a bit at the beginning. Then we cast Vanessa Williams and the way that she came off in the pilot was that they were a unified front. So, although we had several conversations about whether she knows or doesn't know, we decided at the end that people's expectations watching this pilot and the first few episodes is they're in on this together. But again, it's not The Devil and it's not Mrs. Devil. Just look at them as a power couple in New York. She is aware of the majority of her husband's dealings, but there are always secrets between them, things like, what really happened to their daughter who passed away? Maybe secrets that she's keeping from him, secrets that he's keeping from her, things like that.

We want to feel, whether or not they're in on it together, that they are a real couple. They go through things that a regular couple would go through. They mourn the loss of their child. They have fights within the marriage, things like that, that make it feel a lot more grounded and real.

We see Jane in the pilot begin to realize the effect The Drake is having on them. In most horror films, the main characters don't realize they should leave the house until it's too late. Will this couple be more cognizant or blissfully unaware?
Miller: Certainly Jane becomes very aware of what's going on, to a certain extent. She is haunted by these dreams and ghosts and things like that in the pilot. Really, Jane is a vessel through which we view this story. She's our heroine. She will become quite aware of some of the things that are going on.

Henry, on the other hand, is someone that's driven by his ambition. As we see Gavin start to manipulate Henry and his future, we also see what that does to the couple. We want to start off with this perfect, pure couple and their love for each other is very genuine and very real. But Henry is ... pragmatic and he's not a believer. He's not someone that believes in the supernatural, nor is he seeing any of this stuff that Jane is privy to. So, it causes a little bit of a rift in their relationship when Jane starts to see and think all these terrible things are going on in the building and Henry isn't aware or doesn't necessarily believe any of it.

But the trick also is: How do you keep Jane from saying, "OK, this building is bananas. I want to go find a place in Brooklyn!"? So, that's part of the draw. Not only making her aware of the supernatural, but having her have discover things within The Drake that relate to herself and can reveal not only secrets of The Drake, but perhaps some secrets about her own past.

Are all the residents of The Drake inherently bad considering they have made deals with The Devil, so to speak?
Miller: No. The idea is that there's obviously an unlimited supply of residents. The majority of the residents are just living in a beautiful building on Park Avenue. You'll watch them fall into deals. Some characters' deals will get played out in the course of an episode or two, and other characters' and residents' deals are on what we would call the longer con. Those are more of our season regulars — be it Jane and Henry, Brian (Robert Buckley) and Louise (Mercedes Masöhn), characters like that — that may not be inherently in a deal currently, but [we'll see] how that deal evolves and what it is that they're truly after and how Gavin helps them achieve that.

Will you be watching 666 Park Avenue?

The series premieres Sunday at 10/9c on ABC.
