29 of 42: The new ABC series '666 Park Avenue,' which stars Vanessa Williams, Terry O'Quinn, Rachael Taylor and Dave Annable, will premiere on September 30, 2012 and will air on Sundays from 10 to 11:00 p.m. ET.

In '666 Park Ave,' O'Quinn, known for his role as John Locke on ABC's 'LOST,' plays Gavin Doran, the owner of a mysterious, lavish Manhattan apartment building called The Drake. Wiliams, last seen on ABC's 'Desperate Housewives,' plays his wife, Olivia.

'Its the upper east side. it's luxurious,' Williams told OnTheRedCarpet.com and other outlets at ABC's Television Critics Association panel on July 27, 2012. 'I thought about the Madoffs immediately because they were extremely wealthy. They had incredible land holdings ... then we all saw the dark side of what happened.'

Rachael Taylor and Dave Annable play seemingly normal young unmarried couple Jane Van Veen and Henry Martin, who are offered the opportunity to manage the enormous complex, which appears to be inhabited by some eerie residents as well as ... supernatural forces.

Executive Producer David Wilcox said the show, which is based on a book series, was influenced by famous horror novelist Stephen King and horror films such as 'The Shinging,' 'The Omen' as well as 'Blue Velvent,' 'Jacob's Ladder' and 'Rosemary's Baby.'

However, given that it airs on ABC, which is owned by the Walt Disney Company, the horror aspect is charactized more by the suspense, the characters and the main theme of the show - seduction - rather than blood and gore. 'We look back at Hitchcock films and how much of that story keeps playing in your head even when you're not seeing it on screen,' he told reporters. 'It's a different kind of horror. It's a psychological horror.'

He also squashed speculation about references to the devil.

'It would've been very easy to have a mosiac in the basement of a pentagram or something like that,' Wilcox said. I think the closet thing you're going to see in this show that tells you it's a show about the devil is the title. That's really it. No one's ever going to say 'devil' ... 'deal with the devil.''
