Vanessa Williams


As we reported last year, Vanessa Williams signed a talent holding deal with ABC Studios. So, it comes as no surprise that we get to see footage from the former Desperate Housewives star’s new show just days after her last one went off air.

The actress has been on an ABC primetime series for seven consecutive seasons, including her four year stint on Ugly Betty, and her starring role on Desperate Housewives.The actress returns to television as the creepy wife of a wealthy building owner in the new ABC supernatural drama series 666 Park Avenue. The official synopsis reads:

At the ominous address of 666 Park Avenue, anything you desire can be yours. Everyone has needs, desires and ambition. For the residents of The Drake, these will all be met, courtesy of the building’s mysterious owner, Gavin Doran (Terry O’Quinn). But every Faustian contract comes with a price. When Jane Van Veen (Rachael Taylor) and Henry Martin (Dave Annable), an idealistic young couple from the Midwest, are offered the opportunity to manage the historic building, they not only fall prey to the machinations of Doran and his mysterious wife, Olivia (Vanessa Williams), but unwittingly begin to experience the shadowy, supernatural forces within the building that imprison and endanger the lives of the residents inside. Sexy, seductive and inviting, The Drake maintains a dark hold over all of its residents, tempting them through their ambitions and desires, in this chilling new drama that’s home to an epic struggle of good versus evil.
