ABC, Sundays Starting September 30th at 10 p.m.

Terry O'Quinn, who played the wheelchair-bound Locke on Lost, returns as an Upper East Side landlord who just might be Satan. Except now he's married to Vanessa Williams (not the one from Melrose Place – the one from Ugly Betty). Nobody does the sinister, remote, crooked-eyebrow thing quite like O'Quinn. In 666 Park Avenue, he rules demonically over his posh apartment complex, the Drake. And he puts the chill into the gullible young couple who just moved in to be his new building managers – including the fetching Rachael Taylor, who begins to suspect they're living in a high-rise hell. On one level it's Bravo-style real estate porn, but on another it has a Rosemary's Baby vibe. Is the building evil, or just the people in it? Or is it just New York?
