Fans of ABC's cancelled series "666 Park Avenue" are going to now have a much longer wait before achieving any sort of closure as the network has suspended broadcasts of the show until the summer of 2013.
According to TVLine, instead of beginning to air the remaining episodes of "666" next month as originally announced, unaired installments won't arrive until the warmer months. Look for the exact dates soon.

As we scramble to get our last minute Christmas shopping done (damn, it's just a week away), the movie year is winding down in a hurry and soon we'll all be hibernating, however momentarily, at the homes of friends and family. But once the cork is popped on the New Year, we're jumping back into the grind and it will all kick off with the Sundance Film Festival.

After traveling the film festival circuit this year, and winning acclaim along the way, filmmaker/activist Byron Hurt's latest work, Soul Food Junkies, which explores the health advantages and disadvantages of what we call Soul Food - an investigation into what he calls "the dark side of the food industry and the growing food justice movement that has been born in its wake" - will air nationally on PBS's Independent Lens, starting on January 14, 2013, at 10pm. Vanessa saw the film at the American Black Film Festival (Abff) over the summer, and she reviewed it enthusiastically, Here. Now the rest of you will get a chance to finally see it as well.

Keep the Soul Food, but lose the sugar, fat and meat. Fans of American soul food, the staple comfort food of the black community is loved, cherished and in dire need of a makeover if you ask culture historian and comedian Dick Gregory, a man hale and hearty into his late senior years. He is correct, according to dieticians who can read the statistics of heart disease, diabetes and cancer within the black community. "Soul Food Junkies" is an important film that dares to go there and question the menu of "Big Momma," the traditionalist within the African American community for serving up high fat foods with loving intentions that please the tongue but slay the body. »

Despite the show's recent cancellation, fans of "666 Park Avenue" should still receive some closure when the series ends its run on ABC as executive producers David Wilcox and Matt Miller promise they are "building to a powerful and surprising series finale."
Wilcox and Miller told TVLine they were given enough time to turn their swan song into a series finale, adding, "We hope fans of the show continue watching all the way to the end of Jane and Henry’s incredible journey to the dark side... where all your questions will be answered.”
As luck would have it, DVR data released last week showed the ratings for the thriller’s November 4 episode spiking a staggering 77 percent — raising hopes that ABC might un-ring the cancellation bell. The news prompted leading man Dave Annable to vent on Twitter that ABC “f—ed up” by axing the series. But it’s a decision »

Certainly feels like the director and producer who has only delivered in mainstream items (Soul Food, Men of Honor, Beauty Shop, Notorious) is trying on a new hat of sorts with the spunky titled The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete. George Tillman Jr.’s latest appears to tap into the more authentic, inner city borough pics featuring kids in survival mode a la Raising Victor Vargas or Chop Shop. Starring Anthony Mackie, Jeffrey Wright (pic on the left), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jennifer Hudson, Jordin Sparks (see tweet pic top right) and a pair of first-time on the big screen young thesps in the lead roles, filming took place during the summer, has been post-production since late August and features tech crew work by the likes of Production Designer Jane Musky (Why Stop Now) and Cinematographer Reed Morano (For Ellen).

Despite its People's Choice Awards 2013 nomination for "Favorite New TV Drama" and ABC recently ordering a few more scripts for the series, the network officially gave "666 Park Avenue" the axe today.
Per Deadline, the plan seems to be for the series’ original 13-episode order to play out the way things did last season for "Pan Am" with ABC not shutting the door on the show completely, technically keeping it in consideration for next season, although we have to think such a scenario is highly unlikely given the low ratings "666" has received.
In the meantime we'll keep our eyes on the situation and let you know if anything changes.
“666 Park Avenue” stars Rachael Taylor (“Charlie’s Angels,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” Transformers) as Jane Van Veen, Dave Annable (“Brothers & Sisters,” “Reunion”) as Henry Martin, Robert Buckley (“One Tree Hill,” “Lipstick Jungle”) as Brian Leonard, Mercedes Masöhn (“The Finder,” “Chuck,” “Three Rivers”) as Louise Leonard, »

We've been sporadic at best with our coverage of ABC's "666 Park Avenue," mainly because we didn't think it'd last long given its low ratings. In any event, here's a look at the show's upcoming guest star Whoopi Goldberg in character from Episode 1.09, "Hypnos."
"666 Park Avenue" - Episode 1.09 - "Hypnos" (12/2/12 airdate):
Jane is sent back in time when she is hypnotized by Maris Elder (Whoopi Goldberg); Henry considers running for city council; Sasha's identity is revealed.
Executive producer David Wilcox told TV Guide, Elder is "a mysterious resident of the Drake who helps Jane unlock the secret of the building's true evil origins. Whoopi's an incredible actor so when we heard that she was a horror fan, we wrote the role for her."

Sexy, scary, and insanely addictive, 666 Park Avenue is the perfect hour of television to fill the gap left by Desperate Housewives. Based on the book series by Gabrielle Price, 666 Park Avenue is a mystery infused take on the tried and true 'Good vs Evil' trope, managing to elevate its interpretation to decadently mature levels. It would be hard to imagine 666 making it to television without the success of American Horror Story to illustrate how big the horror niche had become amongst TV viewers, but Park Avenue gives a take that is far more mainstream, and a bit more 'adult' in its narrative, both in terms of maturity and ... you know. Check out a couple of clips for yourself and be sure to tune in to 666 Park Avenue Sunday, September 30, 10:00-11:00 p.m., Et/Pt.

666 Park Avenue is my personal favorite new show of the season (though I haven’t seen Arrow yet) and I hope you’ll love it too. This poster gives an interesting twist to the campaign – get it? twist? – but should really be seen primarily as a metaphor. Don’t worry, the show won’t require you to take notes and study, it’s just pretty and creepily entertaining. Like the poster!
Presumably we’re getting this new poster because it includes the just-released premiere date, which we told you about earlier. Here’s your friendly reminder-as-to-what-it’s-about trailer and series summary:

If there's one thing that can be said about the selection of films George Tillman Jr. has directed over the years, its that the man is open to exploring various genres. From the family-focused dramedy Soul Food to his more recent work, which includes action film Faster and biographical dramas Notorious and Men of Honor, there's a certain measure of diversity with regards to the topics he tackles as a director. His next project, The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete is a drama and it will feature not one but two former American Idol contestants. From State Street Pictures and iDeal Partners, The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete is written by Michael Starrbury and focuses on two inner-city kids who are left to take care of themselves one summer after their mothers are taken away by the authorities. According to Deadline, Jordin Sparks and Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson »
His last film was the '70s-homaging Rock-starrer Faster, but George Tillman Jr seems to be returning to the city-based family drama of his earlier Soul Food for his next project. The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister And Pete is on its way before the cameras, with Anthony Mackie and Jeffrey Wright among the cast.Mackie and Wright are apparently playing characters called Chris and Henry, which tells us little to nothing. The only synopsis for the film that has emerged so far pegs it as "a coming of age drama about two inner-city youths who are left to fend for themselves over the summer after their mothers are taken away by the authorities."Since Mackie and Wright could not be considered likely casting for "inner city youths", we're going to suggest that they're not the centre of the film. But where are the fathers in the set-up as outlined above? »
