Description: If you could make one wish, what would it be? And what would you do to get it? At 666 Park Avenue, all of your dreams and burning desires can come true: wealth, sex, love, power, even revenge. But just be careful what you wish for, because the price you pay…could be your soul. Welcome to The Drake, the premiere apartment building on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Owned by the mysterious Gavin Doran (Terry O’Quinn) and his sexy wife Olivia (Vanessa Williams), The Drake is home to dozens of residents who are unaware they’re living in the dark embrace of supernatural forces. They think their dreams are all coming true, only to find they’ve been lured into making, what feels like, a deal with the Devil. When a young Mid-western couple – Jane Van Veen (Rachael Taylor) and Henry Martin (Dave Annable) – is hired to manage The Drake, they soon discover that evil, obsession, and manipulation has a home.

Why Was It Cancelled? Going in to the season, this series looked to do well on Sunday nights with Desparate Housewives, then in its last season, as its lead-in. But that veteran series was on the downside of its ratings glory days and 666 Park Ave never managed to build much of its own following. ABC was fairly quick to cancel the show by mid-season without giving it much of a chance to grow its audience (that was before the ratings attrition had the broadcast networks on the verge of panic). And since the show did not develop much of a fanbase, there was little attempt made by to keep it alive.
