666 Park Avenue Debuts At Comic-Con [Video]
666 Park Avenue won’t be hitting the small screens until this Fall, but Comic-Con attendees got a sneak peek last night. The pilot episode for the highly anticipated ABC show was screened last night at the California convention.
The new show features Terry O’Quinn, Rachel Taylor, Vanessa Williams, and a really creepy hotel which is located at, yes, 666 Park Avenue.
Here’s the official synopsis:
“At the ominous address of 666 Park Avenue, anything you desire can be yours. Everyone has needs, desires and ambition. For the residents of The Drake, these will all be met, courtesy of the building’s mysterious owner, Gavin Doran (Terry O’Quinn). But every Faustian contract comes with a price. When Jane Van Veen (Rachael Taylor) and Henry Martin (Dave Annable), an idealistic young couple from the Midwest, are offered the opportunity to manage the historic building, they not only fall prey to the machinations of Doran and his mysterious wife, Olivia (Vanessa Williams), but unwittingly begin to experience the shadowy, supernatural forces within the building that imprison and endanger the lives of the residents inside.”
So Terry O’Quinn plays the devil? Dealing for people’s souls?
The new ABC show promises to be dark, sexy, and scary, but it’s yet to be seen if it will be any good. Last night, Comic-Con goers, as they tend to do, took to Twitter to talk about the pilot of 666 Park Avenue.

666 Park Avenue: Cool premise, way too heavy-handed, really ineffective cast. Don’t watch it. #SDCC

666 Park Avenue was a bit disappointing. Slow & so much happening & yet nothing happening. I just didn’t care about any of the characters.
