666 Park Avenue TV Show Synopsis
The 666 Park Avenue plot revolves around a newly married couple who have moved to New York to start their married life together. They are ordinary folks and find a job as the newest building managers in town.
They think they've landed on their feet when they find there's a job vacancy at an upscale apartment block at 999 Park Avenue. The job even comes with it's own apartment. Everyone seems so nice including the owner of the building and his wife.
There are some unique and strange designs on the basement floor. Jane becomes interested in them and it's a sign of the real address that they live at, 666 Park Avenue.
Soon Jane and Henry find that there's more to being building managers than they thought. At least in this freaky building. Jane is quickly seduced by the lifestyle and begins to realize there may be a price to pay for their sudden good fortune. However, it seems Henry is the person they really want to entice to the dark side.
You see, everyone in the building has made a deal with the devil. They are highly successful and their every dream comes true, but at what costs?
Once you check into this freaky apartment block, you're never checking out of your own free will. Unless you decide to die that is.
This might sound cheesy, but it really isn't. There's a great cast, brilliant sets and it looks authentic. If you loved Devil's Advocate, then this is right up your alley.

Why Has ABC Ordered the 666 Park Avenue Series?
The 666 Park Avenue series is looking to be one of the most highly anticipated TV shows of 2012. There has been a lot of hype and gossip around the show. This will be a new genre for ABC as they don't normally invest in the supernatural type genre. However, it's easy to see why they have chosen to give 666 Park Avenue a chance. Some readers may think of ABC's Once Upon a Time, but that's more of the fairytale genre.
If you look at successful TV programs, on other networks, you'll find a lot of them have a fantasy type element to them. Many of them are also of the vampire persuasion. Think of True Blood on HBO and Vampire Diaries on the CW. Then there's the long running Supernatural, also on the CW and the new comer The Secret Circle TV show (again on the CW). There's Being Human and Fringe too.
If you look in the past, there have been a number of successful genre based shows such as Buffy The Vampire Slayer and the successful spin-off, Angel. Ghost Whisperer was a long standing TV show as was Dead Like Me. There was also Charmed, which went on and on and on. I could continue to list supernatural based TV shows, but hopefully you get the point.
Can't wait for the 666 Park Avenue TV series to air on ABC this Fall, then get the 666 Park Avenue books today.
Will You Like 666 Park Avenue TV Show?
Are You a Fan of the 666 Park Avenue TV Show
I really think I will enjoy 666 Park Avenue when it hits our screens on ABC later in the year. I am looking forward to it because I am a huge fan of fantasy programs and books. I love almost all the supernatural type shows listed above. I think since the TV show is set to be in the richer parts of New York, it could have elements of the intrigue and wealth of Gossip Girl while having an other-worldy type effect and events.
The show plays on human nature. Many of us would make deals with the Devil if we could trade up for some of these perks. It's not a new concept in that it's been done many times before. In Supernatural where ordinary folks made deals with the Crossroad Demon for 10 years of whatever it was they wanted and then died as the Demon came to collect their soul. It was also done in Devil's Advocate, where people worked for the Devil in order to have wealth and prestige. In fact, if the 666 Park Avenue TV series comes over like the people who lived in the apartment block owned by the Devil in Devil's Advocate, I can see this show being a massive hit.
The everyday day rules probably won't apply in the 666 Park Avenue TV show and that's what makes it so appealing. Most people will never have a chance to be truly rich, but add in a few deals with the Devil and your whole outlook on life can quickly change. What's the price? That's probably the most interesting part!
