ABC pulled the plug on a drama series that, as it turns out, aired its final episode just a few weeks ago. Variety reports that the network canceled the Demian Bichir-Roselyn Sanchez series “Grand Hotel.”
Based on the Spanish series “Gran Hotel,” the show premiered for its first and only season on June 17, wrapping its 13-episode run on Sept. 9. Variety notes that the series “provided an upstairs/downstairs look at the scandals and secrets of both the Mendoza family and the staff that works for them.”
The series was developed and written by Brian Tanen, who executive produced along with Eva Longoria and Ben Spector through UnbeliEVAble, and Ramon Campos and Teresa Fernandez-Valdes for ABC Studios.
“It averaged a modest 0.50 rating in the key 18-49 demographic and around 2.7 million total viewers across its single season,” Variety notes. “The show struggled to make an impact alongside ABC’s summer roster stacked with unscripted content, coming in below competition series like ‘Holey Moley,’ ‘Card Sharks’ and ‘To Tell The Truth.’”
