Along with the other networks, ABC is premiering a few new shows this fall. Some comedies, some dramas, some action-adventures, and some fantasy / Sci-fi shows. Of course, Geek Soul Brother is interested in the fantasy Sci-fi stuff, and action doesn’t hurt.
First up on the slate is a drama set in a swank apartment building – The Drake. It’s owner Gavin Doran (Terry O’Quinn) and his wife Olivia (Vanessa Williams) take care of their tenants, giving them their hearts desire. But they can’t do the daily managing and still reap souls as payment from the tenets, so they hire Jane Van Veen and Henry Martin, played by Rachael Taylor and Dave Annable. It seems like a dream job, but any dream can turn into a nightmare.
An ensemble cast, each in their own apartment or life situations, makes this anti- Fantasy Island show a little on the interesting side According to the show page, 666 Park Avenue is based on a book series by Gabriella Pierce. It was written by David Wilcox (Fringe, Life on Mars).
