Grand Hotel comes from writer and executive producer Brian Tanen, with Eva Longoria also on board as an EP. The show, based on a Spanish telenovela, is described as a soapy drama set against the backdrop of a Miami Beach hotel, centering around the family who owns the business, the staff who run it, and the explosive secrets they hide under the perfect exterior.
Ben Spector, Oliver Bachert and Christian Gockel also executive produce.
Three Rivers, from writers/EPs Sherry Bilsing-Graham & Ellen Kreamer, is set on a Texas ranch.
Rebecca left her family’s Texas ranch years ago to work at an upscale hotel in New York, but after being promised ownership of the ranch by her smooth-talking cowboy dad Beau, she’s back and ready to utilize her big city tactics to turn their rustic ranch into a destination spot oozing Southern hospitality. Getting her siblings to fall in line with her vision will be the real thorn in Rebecca’s side. And that’s going to be even harder once Beau reveals a life-changing family secret.
