There’s no telling in these tumultuous times when we’ll be getting new episodes of the crime drama. Luckily we have a few options featuring Pedro Alonso that will replenish your reserves.
The series Grand Hotel (originally titled Gran Hotel) is a crime mystery about the disappearance of a young hotel floor manager Cristina and her brother Julio (Yon Gonzáles) as he tries to uncover what happened to her. Pedro Alonso plays Diego Murquía in the series, the hotel’s manager who is engaged to the hotel owner’s daughter Alicia.
Julio and Alicia search for the missing Cristina, even suspecting Diego of having a hand in her disappearance, and when the two grow fond of each other it creates a love triangle between them and Diego.
For anyone that likes the intrigue of Money Heist combined with the period aesthetic of Downton Abbey, this is the show for you. Find Grand Hotel‘s three seasons on Netflix.
The series Diablo Guardián is Amazon Video’s first Latin American production. It tells the story of Violetta (Paulina Gaitán) a young woman from Mexico who steals over $200,000 from her parents and leaves the boredom of Mexico to begin a new life in the place of her dreams: New York City.
