TV show description:      
This TV series takes place at The Drake hotel which is located at 666 Park Avenue in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. It’s a place where all of one’s burning needs, desires and ambitions can be met — for a price, thanks to the building’s mysterious owner, Gavin Doran. But, be careful what you wish for.

After moving to New York City from the Midwest, young couple Jane Van Veen and Henry Martin are offered the opportunity to manage the historic hotel.

Jane (Rachael Taylor), a small town girl with big ambitions, has always had an interest in architecture and that convinced Gavin to give her and Henry the resident manager position — and the luxury apartment that comes with the job. When she’s not researching The Drake history for upcoming renovation plans or befriending her new neighbors, Jane finds herself whisked away to high-end boutiques and cocktail parties thanks to her new boss, Gavin’s wife Olivia.

Henry (Dave Annable) has proven himself a rising star in New York politics. Thanks to the Dorans, he goes from racquetball at the club to limousine escorts to parties at Gracie Mansion and Henry finds himself getting comfortable at the top — until he and Jane begin to suspect that something’s not quite right with their new home.

Gavin Doran (Terry O’Quinn) is the Gordon Gekko of New York real estate. For years, Gavin has owned The Drake and many of the souls that have passed within its walls. He promises his tenants’ deepest desires will come true. He can be your best friend, until you don’t pay on time.

His wife, Olivia (Vanessa Williams), is the queen of the Upper East Side and wears her elegance, wealth and position in society as armor. She’s the face of the power couple. But, while Olivia always maintains the appearance of sophistication, she can be just as ruthless as Gavin.

Jane and Henry unwittingly live in the dark embrace of the building’s supernatural forces which endanger the lives of its residents. These include:

Brian Leonard (Robert Buckley) is a young successful playwright who’s pining for his early success and promise. Plagued by writer’s block, Brian stumbles upon unexpected inspiration in the sexy and flirtatious woman living in the building across the way. With a front row seat, Brian struggles not to stare. But he soon finds staring isn’t necessary — his vixen of a neighbor shows up at his apartment, hired as his wife’s new assistant.

Brian’s wife is Louise (Mercedes Masöhn), a rising hot star in the world of fashion photography. Just as she’s catching a big break in her career, Louise has a mysterious accident in building’s elevator that puts her in the hospital. When she returns home to recuperate, Louise discovers that her history of addiction makes the road to recovery a rocky one.

666 Park Avenue TV show supportAlexis Blume (Helena Mattsson) is the seductive siren living across the way from Brian and Louise. What begins as an innocent flirtation with Brian escalates when Louise hires Alexis as her assistant. Does she have some kind of connection to Gavin?

An independent 14-year-old who’s grown up at The Drake, Nona Clark (Samantha Logan) knows the ins and outs of the building and its residents. When Jane begins researching the building, the two forge an unexpected friendship. Nona possesses a mysterious psychic ability but the future she sees isn’t always bright.

Meanwhile, doorman Tony DeMeo (Erik Palladino) is the eyes and ears of the building.

Series Finale:     
Episode #13 — Lazarus
Brian and Louise discuss what to do with Alexis’ body and decide to hide it in the basement. Gavin meets them on their way up from the basement and notes that Louise is missing an earring. Louise is worried that it might have been left behind with the body and they go back the basement.

Gavin confronts them there. He tells Brian and Louise that their lease agreement has been terminated because of Alexis’ death and he consigns them both to the basement wall.

Jane has a drowning experience in the bathtub when the chain of the stopper coils around her feet. She learns that her mother drowned in a similar way. Gavin and Olivia tell Jane that her father was the prime suspect in her mother’s death because he had discovered that she had been having an affair.

Gavin meets Henry at his campaign office and asks Henry to take a stand against Frank Sullivan, the NYC Councilman. Henry refuses to get into dirty politics.

Back at the building, Sullivan is found dead in his apartment. Gavin calls Henry to inform him that Henry’s stand of keeping quiet was a good call — particularly now that Frank was dead.

Jane’s father returns to the Drake and tries to take her away — at gunpoint. They enter the elevator and it malfunctions and opens into Gavin’s room.

Henry arrives looking for Jane and becomes worried after seeing that the bathtub faucet is open in their apartment. Gavin makes Jane’s father shoot Henry. She learns that Gavin is actually her father and he was the one who killed her mother.

Jane is desperate to save Henry’s life and Gavin tells her that there will be a price to pay if he allows Henry to live. Henry does live and he becomes the City Councilman.

Gavin tells Jane that they can take over the world with the help of Jane and Henry’s son. In the final scene, Jane tells Henry that she’s pregnant.
First aired: July 13, 2013.

    Really enjoy this thrilling series they must be crazy to be cancelling it.
    was just getting to know whats going on.

  2. Lizardo says

    I really liked this show, and disappointed to find out that ir has been cancelled. It kept you on your toes, trying to figure out the mystery behind what was going on @ the Drake. I wish you would bring it back, and all of the characters are so good, and an intriging. I want to continue with the story. I think it could have all kinds of stories like some of the other great shows, that would tell a different story, each week, but continue with the same plot lines, and charcters, and bring in well known stars each week. Please reconsider, instead of some of the othe silly shows, like diving, reality shows. Alot more mystery shows need to be airing.

    please do not cancel 666 that was a good thrilling show. You dont want to get up to go to the john.It is so intense that my family and i are sitting on the edge of our couch. This is one of the few shows that are good so please : please dont cancel renew.

    I have been waiting since 12-2-12 for 666 to come back on. What brain dead idiots decided to cancel this show. Do you think the average American adult would not enjoy having to experience the wonderful “clift hangers” of the past by waiting with baited breath for the next episode. No wonder TV viewers of this age are retarded; you people offer no shows that require a little thought, deduction or examination of the actual show to keep an interest and therefore look every week to seeing the next episode. Like the monkey who picked good stocks maybe you should hire some primates to pick winning shows. It’s time to get rid of these **** reality shows ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. What has it been now for them 50 yrs. seems like it. Get some good shows…………………

  5. Lisa Ryan says

    I liked the show.. I don’t understand why the network killed it. I’m starting to get tired of cable tv shows, you never know when a show you enjoy is going to get pulled.

  6. Joy says

    OH MY GOD!! Are you all for real?? Now these 2 series might be being finished??? What is up with that. Every YEAR. STOP making series your not going to keep!!!

  7. Almond Shea says

    And THIS show was cancelled…..yet the likes of Honey Boo Boo – and any other sickening reality show remain on tv? What is wrong with people?? Who are the brain dead morons who watch that foolishness?
    I loved 666 Park Avenue…..and was so disappointed to see that ABC cancelled it. I’m so hoping another Network picks it up and runs with it!!

    If it were not for sports….and a husband who loves them….our cable would be cancelled.

  8. Cindy says

    I am shocked at the cancellation of this show. It was the only one I stayed up for!!! I agree wholeheartedly with the previous comments!

    Bring it back gosh darn it!

  9. Brenda Mahoney says

    It is frustrating when networks cancel shows without concluding the story. One week it’s on; the next week, nothing. I agree with the other comentators who find the reality-based shows inane. I also get sick of seeing autopsied bodies: those shows are becoming so ghoulish. I enjoy a good mystery without the gore. I am finding fewer shows I can enjoy on Primetime. Please reconsider bringing this show back. I enjoyed the acting and the story.

  10. Lee McClain says

    Hurry up and put 666 Park Avenue back on! It was a beautiful program. I looked forward every Sunday night to watch this well made, creative, seductive, enjoyable, puzzling and all around great acting by all in it……so PLEASE, PLEASE BRING it back!

    Why do tv stations get a good show ….. and then…..don’t bring it back?? What are you executives thinking??????!!!! This is a great show

  11. Ingrid says

    So many tired, boring shows that just keep getting renewed then there are the even more boring reality shows. Along comes a show, like Heroes and Lost before it that actually keeps you interested and thinking and it gets axed. Very disappointing that studio bosses only see mind numbing programmes as winners.

  12. Sophia says

    Please don’t cancel this show, it’s breath taking, enjoyable, unbelievable, and shocking. This show has you sitting on the end of your seat. Rushing the week out to be able to see it again. Why was this show cancelled?

  13. Carole says

    Please renew this series. I cannot stand all the idiotic reality shows. If Honey Boo Boo can stay on why can’t something with a little mystery to it.
