LOST's Terry O'Quinn is the first to be cast in ABC's new supernatural drama 666 PARK AVE according to Deadline.
As previously reported, the show will be based on the book series by Gabrielle Pierce, and centres around a couple moving to the titular address only to find the building houses some decidedly dodgy tenants. And not in playing techno and 4 in the morning type dodgy. We're talking ghosts! (That said, I think I'd rather take ghosts over the former). Terry O'Quinn is set to play the owner of the building.
If the concept sounds a little too AMERICAN HORROR STORY for your liking, then a quick read of the book's official synopsis reveals more about the story than ABC are letting on at the moment...
"What if your mother-in-law turned out to be an evil, cold-blooded witch . . . literally?
Ever since fabulously wealthy Malcolm Doran walked into her life and swept her off her feet, fledgling architect Jane Boyle has been living a fairy tale. When he proposes with a stunning diamond to seal the deal, Jane can't believe her incredible luck and decides to leave her Paris-based job to make a new start with Malcolm in New York.
But when Malcolm introduces Jane to the esteemed Doran clan, one of Manhattan's most feared and revered families, Jane's fairy tale takes a darker turn. Soon everything she thought she knew about the world--and herself--is upended. Now Jane must struggle with newfound magical abilities and the threat of those who will stop at nothing to get them."
Sounds like there's quite a lot of mythology the show can mine from.
FRINGE writer David Wilcox will handle writing and executive producing duties, while seasoned TV director Alex Graves will direct the pilot.
We'll have more on this as it develops...
