ABC Orders ‘Grand Hotel,’ ‘Whiskey Cavalier’ https://t.co/Gz3XUXsNNi— Variety (@Variety) May 11, 2018
“Grand Hotel” is about the last family-owned hotel in multicultural Miami Beach. Charismatic Santiago Mendoza owns the hotel, while his 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. Damien Birchir, Roselyn Sanchez, and Raquel Robinson star, among others.
Whiskey Cavalier stars Scott Foley and Lauren Cohan. It follows the adventures of tough but tender FBI super-agent Will Chase (codename: “Whiskey Cavalier”). After an emotional break-up, Chase is assigned to work with badass CIA operative Francesca “Frankie” Trowbridge. They lead a group of flawed, heroic spies.
