666 Park Avenue is an American supernatural drama series that aired on ABC from September 30, 2012 to July 13, 2013.[1][2] The series was created and produced by David Wilcox, and was loosely based upon the novel of the same name by Gabriella Pierce. The show stars Rachael Taylor, Dave Annable, Vanessa Williams, and Terry O'Quinn and follows a couple who learns that the Manhattan apartment building that they just moved into, including its upscale tenants, might be possessed by a mysterious demonic force.

The elaborate Beaux-Arts building located on the old money Upper East Side of Manhattan called "The Drake" in the series is an actual apartment building, The Ansonia in New York City.[3]

ABC ordered the pilot on January 20, 2012,[4] and it was picked up for a full first season of thirteen episodes on May 11, 2012 (2012-05-11).[5] It aired on Sunday evenings at 10:00 pm Eastern/9:00 pm Central, with the series Revenge serving as its lead in. On November 16, 2012, ABC announced that the series had been canceled, but that it would finish its thirteen-episode run.[6]

On December 21, 2012, ABC announced that the final four episodes of 666 Park Avenue would air the following summer[7] and that Happy Endings and Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 would be shown in its place on Sundays.[8][9] The final episodes were first broadcast in Spain, and have also since aired in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, ahead of their original airing on ABC.

Plot

666 Park Avenue focuses on Jane Van Veen (Rachael Taylor) and her partner Henry Martin (Dave Annable), the new co-managers of the Drake residential hotel, located at 999 Park Avenue.[10] The Drake is owned by mysterious billionaire Gavin Doran (Terry O'Quinn) and his wife Olivia (Vanessa Williams).[10] The plot follows both Jane and Henry, and the other residents of the Drake who live in the shadow of the dark supernatural forces of the Drake and its owner.[10][11]

Production

Series star Vanessa Williams stated that she perceives the characters of Gavin and Olivia Doran as a "supernatural" Bernie and Ruth Madoff. "It's a world that I wanted to explore," she said. "It's the Upper East Side. It's luxurious. It's a couple that are very powerful. I thought about the Madoffs immediately because they were extremely wealthy. They had incredible land holdings all over that people knew about and knew that they had a great amount of wealth. And then we all saw the dark side and what happened and how they created their empire."[46]

Hurricane Sandy

When Hurricane Sandy hit New York City in late October 2012, the sets of 666 Park Avenue were damaged.[47][48]

Criticism

One Million Moms, a Christian activist group known for trying to mobilize conservative women in protest against various media outlets, made 666 Park Avenue a target of its protestation. The organization, having taken exception to the show's use of the mark of the devil and believing that exposure to it was inappropriate, prompted its members to e-mail the sponsors of the network urging them to withdraw revenue from the show.[49][50]

Cancellation

On November 16, 2012, 666 Park Avenue was canceled by ABC. The network will air the thirteen episodes produced, but ultimately decided to pass on the two extra scripts that were ordered.[6][51] On November 21, 2012, it was announced that producers had been given enough notice of the show's cancellation that they were reworking the final episode to function as a series finale and give the fans closure.[52]

Metacritic gave it an average score of 62% based on 22 reviews.[53]
