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.

  2. felicia says

    Bring this show back, great cast. Can’believe it was cancelled.The reality shows on cable are terrible.

  3. Marylyn says

    After showing the last 4 episodes. Then do a re-run of the whole 1st season.

    Please do not cancel this show, renew it for another season & keep it on Saturday night.

  4. Cheryl says

    This was a great show with very good writers but it should not have been in a Sunday night time slot. The subject matter was very scary—the kind of stuff most young adult viewers like. Maybe if ABC had moved it to Fri or Sat night, they could have pulled in the younger adult viewers who could watch it before they go out clubbing or whatever since they don’t get out until after 10 p.m. or so on the weekends anyway.

  5. Susan says

    I loved this show and hope the episodes not shown can run sometime soon or better yet, run the entire series again over the summer. TV can be rather dull June to September so there’s plenty of time to get the whole first season shown. Maybe if the ratings take off, there would be a season 2.

  6. Patricia says

    I can’t believe they cancelled 666 Park Ave. ABC really did not give it a chance. The storyline is great and the cast is fantastick. Promote it more..and bring it back. Actually, re-show the series this summer to give people the chance it see it. This is one show that I really look forward to on Sunday’s since Desperate Wives is off the air.

  7. Elaine says

    This was an excellent series, and wasn’t given enough time or enough promotion for enough people to see. Anyone who did watch it was hooked, because the plots were so intricate and sinister and interesting! The character development was great, and the whole experience was so intense, nothing like it! If this had shown on Syfy, people who would have liked it would probably have noticed it a little sooner. But again, a little promotion would have gone a long way in targeting the right audience.

  8. says

    something you have to think about is always getting cancelled. it is the garbage they keep.
    or it could be that no one likes to be reminded that the devil does have a hand in our daily temptations. one who knows our desires and will gladly accommodate us for a price.
