Set in the 1950s, the series follows the mobsters, politicians and entertainers involved in establishing Miami's first big-name hotel, just as Fidel Castro is taking control of Cuba and putting an end to gambling in Havana. The Miramar Playa Hotel is run by Ike Evans (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), who essentially sells his soul to the devil, aka mob boss Ben "The Butcher" Diamond (Danny Huston), to finance his dream.

Mitch Glazer (The Recruit) created Magic City, and executive-produces with Geyer Kosinski (Hope & Faith).
