Welcome to GRAND HOTEL — a new ABC soap opera type show that features the last family-owned hotel in multicultural Miami Beach. Based on a Spanish series, GRAND HOTEL focuses on Santiago Mendoza, the owner of the hotel, and his glamorous second wife, Gigi. Gigi and their adult children enjoy the spoils of Santiago’s success, while the “hotel’s loyal staff round out a contemporary, fresh take on an upstairs/downstairs story”. Expect to see wealthy and beautiful guests, scandals, escalating debt and explosive secrets hiding beneath the facade of this beautiful hotel.
The cast includes Demian Bichir as Santiago Mendoza, Roselyn Sanchez as Gigi Mendoza, Denyse Tontz as Alicia Mendoza, Bryan Craig as Javi Mendoza, Wendy Raquel Robinson as Mrs. P, Lincoln Younes as Danny, Shalim Ortiz as Mateo, Anne Winters as Ingrid, Chris Warren as Jason, Feliz Ramirez as Carolina and Justina Adorno as Yoli. Brian Tanen, Eva Longoria, Ben Spector, Ramon Campos and Teresa Fernandez-Valdes will serve as executive producers.
GRAND HOTEL will air midseason on ABC (see ABC’s full fall 2018 schedule).
