I would never tire of looking at Starz's lush new period piece Magic City (Friday, 10/9c).
Welcome to the Miramar Playa Hotel, a retreat for luxury, glamour and decadence.
In Starz's Magic City premiere on Friday (10/9c), we meet the charismatic Ike Evans (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), who has worked his way up from cabana boy to owner of the Miramar Playa in 1959's Miami Beach. The drama has that 1960s vibe, but sets itself apart from Mad Men's ad-peddling anti-heroes and Pan Am's glitzy international adventures.
On the new Starz series Magic City, Jeffrey Dean Morgan stars as Ike Evans, the owner of the Miramar Playa, one of Miami's most glamorous hotels in the 1950s. But as the hotel prepares for a New Year's Eve performance by Frank Sinatra, union strikes force Ike into a panic that his establishment might have to close. And it's not just his guests Ike's worried about. The hotelier is also indebted to mob boss Ben "The Butcher" Diamond (Danny Huston).
