The remake of the Spanish series 'Gran Hotel,' gets a major makeover with a Miami beach setting in ABC's upcoming 'Grand Hotel.' The original version considered "Spain’s answer to Downton Abbey," looks like a modern twisted thriller as a young man enters rich, luxurious territory to find about his missing sister. 

Eva Longoria serves as the executive producer of the show that explores scandals, escalating debt, and explosive secrets. Here's everything you need to know about the show.

Wealthy and beautiful guests bask in luxury, but scandals, escalating debt and explosive secrets hide beneath the picture-perfect exterior.
