Storyline

As Frank Sinatra rings in a new year in the grand ballroom of Miami Beach's most luxurious dream palace - the Miramar Hotel - its visionary leader, Ike Evans, must deal with the Mob, his complicated family and a city in the midst of dramatic change as Fidel Castro takes control of Cuba, just 200 miles offshore. By day the hotel at the center of 'Magic City' is all diving clown acts and cha-cha lessons by the pool, but at night Miami Beach reveals a darker truth. Dopers, dealers, strippers, gangsters and those who arrest them drift together to hear the top nightclub acts perform. Just beneath the surface, racial tensions stir. Ike must deal with all of this, even while global intrigue is brewing right under his roof. Written by Starz

Trivia

Mitch Glazer is a Miami native. He based many of the stories in the show on experiences he heard about growing up, and while researching later as a journalist. He originally thought it would be a feature film, but he had too much material, so it became a television series. See more »

Goofs

When Stevie is confronted by Danny on the beach, he's wearing a gold chain with a star of David. Different angles through the scene show him not wearing it. The different takes alternate between chain and no chain. See more »

It has a lot of potential to be fantastic
24 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this show. The first episode was kind of boring, and I wasn't sure whether or not I wanted to change the channel. As it went deeper into the story line, boring it was NOT! I started to get the feel of the characters -- and I really enjoyed it. Even my boyfriend (who hardly ever "likes" any show or movie) liked the show. So, what I will say to you is .. give it a try!! It was a lot better than I expected. There is a lot of nude scenes, which I'm okay with.. but I wouldn't watch it as a family.

I already have a lot of questions that I can not wait to get the answers to. I just hope the writers/producers do not ruin it, which there are always ways to do. Keep up the good work.. you found a fan in me!! I will be watching each and every Friday night 'till season end!
