Masterpiece Classic: The Paradise, Season 2, Sundays at 7 pm on KUAC TV

The ParadiseIn the Season 2 premiere, Moray is relishing fashion and life in Paris, while also pining away for Denise, back at The Paradise. One day they will be together, he ardently promises, but the reality is that The Paradise faces an uncertain financial future, and the couple’s devotion seems destined to be tested. Fate reunites Denise and Moray, but under the regime of Katherine and her new husband Tom Weston, the owners of The Paradise. What evolves is an uneasy alliance, complicated by passions from the past and conflicting ambitions for what’s ahead. Will The Paradise – and true love — triumph once again?
