The “Smokeshow” Plot – Gigi attempts to step in to save the hotel after El Rey’s performance gets out of control. Meanwhile, Danny’s cover is blown by one of the hotel staffers; and Ingrid’s deception forces Javi to step up and take responsibility for his actions.
Charismatic Santiago Mendoza owns the hotel, while his glamorous 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.
