TV show description:
The Duques are a large Cuban-American family that run an immensely successful rum and sugar business in South Florida.

The family’s patriarch, Pancho (Hector Elizondo), is offered a lucrative but questionable deal by his bitter adversaries, the Samuels.

Should he listen to his biological son Frank (Nestor Carbonell) and cash out of the sugar business to focus solely on rum? Or, should he decline the offer and side with his adopted son, Alex Vega (Jimmy Smits), who still sees value in sugar and doesn’t trust the Samuels? Pancho ultimately chooses the latter which only deepens the divide between the two very different brothers.

While Frank is easily distracted by random women, Alex is deeply in love with his wife Isabel (Paola Turbay), Pancho’s daughter. Isabel counterbalances Alex by choosing not to involve herself in the business, focusing instead on their three children; young Artie (Samuel Carman), rebellious Katie (Lina Esco), and college-age Jaime (Michael Trevino). When Jaime’s accepted to a reputable school, he must decide whether to please Alex or forge a new life with his beloved girlfriend Rebecca King (Alona Tal).

Pancho’s youngest son, Henry (Eddie Matos), prefers to stand on the sidelines while his older siblings slug it out for control of the family business. Pancho’s wife, Amalia (Rita Moreno), does her best to hold the family together by hosting large, music-filled family cookouts and lively dinners.

Will loyalties to family come first or will the Duques’ secrets and conflicts be their downfall?

    The first good show in years and then you cancel it. Take all the reruns off and put cane back on. Great cast, great story. I don’t know who makes the cancellation decisions or what they base their decisions on; but, they sure goofed.

    Cane is a great serial. I think this is great because you can learn something from it. You can learn how people are, many characters.

    Why would they stop making such a promising show…they just left us hanging. I don’t get why they cut it so short. Is there not a way to prompt them to reconsider. I really miss having a show like this to look forward to….no more escape for me :(

    We love Cane. Please bing it back. One of the better shows these days. So tired of all these cop/law dramas like Cold Case, Without a trace, Law & Order etc….. This one was a nice change.

    Thought that after the Sopranos no other show could match/bring the intrigue, brilliance and exitement to the public. How wrong I was.
    Really looking fwd to more shows of CANE and know for sure that I am not the only one.

    WHEN I STARTED WATCHING CANE ON EPISODE 3, I THOUGHT THE SHOW WAS AND EXCITING SHOW TO WATCH, IF YOU WANT TO CANCEL SOME SHOWS TO BRING BACK CAN YOU CAN CANCEL SHARK, PRISON BREAK AND THOSE REALITY SHOWS. BRING CANE BACK AND GIVE IT A CHANCE TO MAKE THEIR RATINGS GO UP. WHEN YOU PUT ON A GOOD TV SHOW AND THEN PULL IT AND NEVER FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENED ON THE LAST EPISODE. AND THEN MAKE MORE EPISODES TO KEEP IT GOING. GET RID OF THOSE OTHER SHOWS, ESPECIALLY THE REALITY SHOWS, THEIR BORING TO WATCH AND I DONT WATCH THEM. JUST LIKE THE UNIT SHOW, I HAVE NOT SEEN IT ON SINCE ITS LAST SHOW AND THAT WAS A EXCELLENT SHOW, MY SON WAS UPSET SINCE IT HAS NOT BEEN ON AND HE LOVES TO WATCH SHOWS THAT HAS SOME TYPE OF ARMY, NAVY, AIRFORCE, OR MARINES AND SPECIAL OPS. KEEP THE SHOWS ON THAT THE VIEWERS LIKE, DONT PULL THEM SO YOU CAN LOOSE YOUR VEIWERS RATINGS, YOUR THE ONES THAT ARE THE ONES THAT ARE LOOSING THE RATINGS BY PUTTING ON YOUR HIDIOUS SHOWS ON.

    Well done CBS doing a pretty god job, first shark and now Cane, why don’t just cancelled all the series and keep showing realityshows wich we al know are just actors. You suck, justgiv cane and shark another chance.

  10. Ida says

    Don’t you just hate when they do things like this. What a cliff hanger, then they cancel the show. I agree, please bring it back! They should cancel 24, and Prison Break.

  11. Heather says

    Put shows on PPV i’d pay to keep watching this show. Soon I’ll stop watching TV since every show i like get cancelled way to soon. When Lost, DH, 24, are over i will not get involved in another series thats gonna leave me upset. I loved Cane, Kidnapped, Smith, Drive, they never got a chance for us to tell others to watch before network pullled them.

    I agree, “Cane” was a different show from all the reality dreck that saturates our TV. It’s a shame it was given the boot, as well as others like “Journeyman”, for example, when inane shows like “Scrubs” have flourished for so long. Says a lot about the collective IQ, doesn’t it?

    I can’t wait for the DVD.

    Cane was our favorite show. We looked forward to watching it every Tuesday night.
    What can we do to get it back in production??? Is the first and only season available on DVD??. There is nothing but reality shows on televison. Its getting pretty boring….. Please bring CANE back.
