The series will be set in 1895 and center around New York's first luxury hotel. As you might expect from any show set in Shondaland, plenty of scandals and secrets will abound.

Blythe Danner, Matt Lauria, Sarah Bolger and Madeline Zima will also star.

Matt Richenthal is the Editor in Chief of TV Fanatic. Follow him on Twitter and on Google+.

Thanks, Jarrod. With that cast, I would give it a chance. But there was a show on thirty-five years or so ago that this reminds me of, and it died a flaming death. It was called Beacon Hill. I did love it, but that was mostly because of the fine actors. Nancy Marchand, Stephen Elliott, David Dukes, Paul Ryan Rudd ... That one was set in Boston, post-WWI, and was an Americanized version of Upstairs Downstairs. I really did love it ...


@Sua Ann: It will be on ABC, but the series is yet to be approved.


Oh Captain :)
