Rachael Taylor and Dave Annable
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.
666 Park Avenue
"Are we going to be OK here?"
That's a line the characters of a horror show don't often ask themselves, but Jane (Rachael Taylor) says it to Henry (Dave Annable) just after moving into The Drake in the series premiere of ABC's 666 Park Avenue.
Gavin (Terry O'Quinn) and Olivia Doran (Vanessa Williams), the owners of the chic Upper East Side apartment building, hire the innocent Midwestern couple to be the building's resident managers.
Unbeknownst to them, the residents have all made deals with the devil to have their desires fulfilled. (And some desires, like in the clip below, are too hot for TV!)
666 Park Avenue is getting a few new residents.
Without a Trace alum Enrique Murciano and One Life to Live's Wendy Moniz have landed multi-episode arcs on the new ABC drama, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
In 666, an innocent Midwestern couple (Dave Annable and Rachael Taylor) get hired as resident managers of an Upper East Side apartment building in New York owned by Gavin (Lost's Terry O'Quinn) and Olivia Doran (Vanessa Williams).

666 Park Avenue's Terry O'Quinn plays a "sharecropper on the plantation of evil"
Murciano (CSI, NCIS) will play...
Terry O'Quinn and Vanessa Williams
Terry O'Quinn believes the capacity for evil exists in everyone's "color wheel," and he'll be exercising one shade playing building owner Gavin Doran on ABC's upcoming drama 666 Park Avenue.
"My theory is that Gavin is kind of a sharecropper on the plantation of evil," the actor told reporters Friday at the Television Critics Association fall TV previews. "He plants the seeds, but he only gets half the harvest."
"Why just watch if you can feel?" As new-season slogans go, ABC's feels ... well, a bit clingy and demanding. Back off, ABC. I'll feel you when I'm good and ready.
But the proof is in the programming, and ABC's new fall schedule — unveiled during Tuesday's Lincoln Center upfront presentation — feels like something I'll be spending a fair amount of time analyzing, and perhaps even enjoying, in the season to come. (See the full lineup here.)

When it briefly transformed into One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest two years ago, Hugh Laurie had an equally powerful actor, Andre Braugher, to play off as his nuthouse shrink. Now Fox's medical drama is taking a not-so-wonderful journey to the land of Oz — the HBO prison drama, that is — and all he's got is bland Odette Annable as a jailhouse doc House will no doubt hire at Princeton-Plainsboro once he gets sprung.
Romancing the Stone
Get Billy Ocean on the horn! NBC is planning to adapt Romancing the Stone as a television series, Deadline reports.
The 1984 romantic comedy stars Kathleen Turner as romance novelist Joan Wilder, who travels to Colombia to save her kidnapped sister, with the help of con man/charmer Jack T. Colton (Michael Douglas). The box office smash, which launched Turner's career and is considered Douglas' comeback film, spawned an equally successful sequel, 1985's Jewel of the Nile — and two killer theme songs, Eddy Grant's funky original and Ocean's peppier follow-up.
Odette Annable has joined the cast of House as a series regular for Season 8, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
