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.

    That was really wreckless of the tv station to cancel the show because that was one of the few shows actually on today that could hold my attention and had substance about it. I’m not to sure what these executives are looking for when they pump for shows bit the majority of tv now i pure garbage leaving a person like myself that really want pure entertainment instead of corhersed arguments and vial language . I would takr a toll any day and vote on the the television show 666 Park Ave. I’ve nevr been a big auspenae nor witchcraft movies but this show shows something morw and its inticing.

    When ABC started to advertise 666 Park Avenue for the new season. I didn’t think that it was a program that I would find interesting. So I just didn’t watch the first few episodes of the program. ABC’s advertising just didn’t seem to explain much, about what this program was about. Just had the TV on for some noise, as there isn’t anything on to watch that I enjoy, just happened to be tuned to ABC, and 666 came on. Sorry that I didn’t start to watch the series when it started the new season. Well, maybe I am not sorry that I didn’t start to watch it. I started to watch, and looked forward to the show every Sunday night. I went on vacation for a week and came back to relax and watch my favorite program AND IT WAS GONE, VANISHED. ABC is a good reason I don’t watch much TV . Most of the programs are nothing but filler to waste time. When they get something that people like to watch and has a plot and some kind of story they cancel the program every time. They had a great program here. Would still be watching it if it was on. A word to the networks. Don’t start a series and get people interested in watching, and not finish it with some kind of an ending. And you wonder why you are loosing your viewers.

    “666” was a very well acted and scripted cliff hanger type series which deserved a much better chance. I’ll admit that I have just discovered this show but fell in love with it. What a shame for it’s viewers to never know how it ended. Very cheap of ABC who seems to be famous for quickly ending a good show without closure for it’s viewers. For gosh sakes, at least do a TV movie to bring an ending to the series! One reason for low ratings with a new series is because viewers are afraid to start watching it knowing it likely will have such a short run.

  8. Jen says

    I did not get the chance to watch the show while it aired but found it on Netflix and was so intrigued that I watched the entire season in 2 days! Loved it from the beginning and am very sorry that it was canceled. I don’t understand the reasoning for the decision with so much crap that is allowed to be renewed. Such a disappointment. The network really needs to rethink this one!

  9. Carl says

    I just discovered the show on Netfix. It’s absolutely intriguing. Has anyone noticed how the main couple on the show resemble a modern day Samatha and Darren Stephens from Bewitch?

  10. Matt Noyes says

    Great show. Was able to watch on Netflix and there was more to come!! Much better than most of what I see nowadays on TV.

  11. WENDY says

    I really enjoyed the series & hated to see it end. I extremely dislike reality tv & love the idea of mystery & intrigue all of which is simply left out of all the trash being offered in the so called reality of tv. I am sure I do not stand alone in the disappointment experienced when 666 ended & in wishing this series would return. How about this spring?

    • Mel says

      I don’t enjoy watching tv reality shows that the networks are flooding the channels with and I would hope that someone in the tv networkland would dare to aire something different. However, I feel if there was better advertisement for the tv show, 666 Park Avenue, the network would have had a great hit, but they were too fast in throwing in the towel and a great show was canceled inthe process!!!!!
