The sets for ABC drama 666 Park Avenue have been damaged by Hurricane Sandy.

The horror drama's set, located at Cine Magic Riverfront Studios in Brooklyn, was flooded when the storm hit the East Coast, according to Entertainment Weekly.

"I went to check them out on the night of the storm at 10pm and they were under 6 feet of water - the entire complex," said studio owner Peter Kapsalis. "It wasn't in very good shape."

Some sets were apparently completely destroyed in the storm, though others may be able to be salvaged.

"The main sets stayed in place even with the water rushing in [but] everything is extensively damaged," Kapsalis explained.

A number of television shows that shoot in New York - including Elementary, 30 Rock and Person of Interest - halted production ahead of Sandy's arrival earlier this week.

ABC is expected to make a decision regarding the future of 666 Park Avenue in the coming days - the network is yet to commit to more filmed episodes, but has commissioned a further two scripts to be written.

Isn't that a sign that the weather even thinks the show sucks.

This kind of reminds me when the prime time soap "Second Chances" had all of its sets destroyed in an earthquake in '94. The ratings were decent, but by the time the sets would've been rebuild, the 2 lead actresses would've been VERY pregnant, so they just said "to hell with it" & canceled the show.

Batman would have continued on another network (forget which) if they haddn't already demolished the Batcave.

It's a mark of doom.

Hearing about all of this flooding in Brooklyn makes me wonder how JC Studios (where ATWT & AW were taped) fared. I wonder what would happen if a soap experienced such a disaster.

That's true Matt. Never thought of that had this happened when soaps were filmed there.

I think the show's cancelled. ABC has many more dramas on tap. I want to see Red Widow and Mistresses and even Zero Hour doesn't look bad.

I just feel bad for Vanessa Williams in all of this and I hope she finds something else.

...I really like the show. Not all that important in light of everything else, though.
