Daytime Emmy winner, Bryan Craig (Ex-Morgan Corinthos) has certainly been busy since exiting General Hospital a few years back. While the last series he appeared on CW’s Valor was cancelled, there was great news this weekend that the ABC pilot in which he appeared, Grand Hotel has gotten a series pick-up by ABC!

In the log lines for the show, “Grand Hotel is set at the last family-owned hotel in multicultural Miami Beach. Charismatic Santiago Mendoza owns the hotel, while his glamorous second wife, Gigi, and their adult children enjoy the spoils of success. The hotel’s loyal staff round out a contemporary, fresh take on an upstairs/downstairs story. Wealthy and beautiful guests bask in luxury, but scandals, escalating debt and explosive secrets hide beneath the picture-perfect exterior.”

The show is based on the Spanish series. Craig plays the role of Javi Mendoza. As well, former Prospect Park All My Children alum, Denyse Tontz (Ex-Miranda Montgomery) is also a series regular as Alicia Mendoza.

The rest of the cast includes: Demian Bichir as Santiago Mendoza with Roselyn Sanchez as Gigi 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.

Behind the scenes are some pretty heavy hitters: Former Y&R and ‘Desperate Housewife’ star Eva Longoria serves as one of the executive producers, along with Brian Tanen who serves as writer and executive producer; and the other EP’s that include: Ben Spector, Ramon Campos, and Teresa Fernandez-Valdes.

Ken Olin directed the pilot episode that got the show its series order.

So, excited to see Bryan and Grand Hotel coming up in the 2018-2019 primetime TV season? Comment below. But first check out the series official trailer below!
