‘Gran Hotel’ is a Spanish period-drama that follows the love, life and scandals of the people in a hotel. The popularity of the series in Spain brought it to the attention of the ABC network. An adaptation was commissioned and now it is here in the form of ‘Grand Hotel’. Instead of giving an ethnic makeover to the cast, owing to its shift to America, it was decided to keep the focus on a Hispanic family. It is produced by Davah Avena, Robert D. Simon, Jeff MacVittie and Paul Kurta. Brian Tanen, Ramon Campos, Bill D’Elia, Teresa Fernandez-Valdes, Eva Longoria and Ben Spector serve as executive producers. Nicki Renna serves as co-producer and Curtis Kheel is associated with the project as co-executive producer. The episodes have been directed by D’Elia, Longoria, Ken Olin, Ron Underwood and Marisol Adler.
