Dangerous and decadent, “Magic City” begins in 1959, in Miami’s Miramar Playa Hotel where hotelier Ike Evans (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is conjuring up ways to finance his dream. He has essentially sold his soul to the devil: mob boss Ben “The Butcher” Diamond (Danny Huston). Ike’s wife Vera (Olga Kurylenko), a former showgirl, and his three children think he is an honorable man, but he just can’t break his pact with the most notorious criminal in town. So Ike’s life is a façade: his home and his business must be kept separate – but does he have the sleight of hand to pull it off?
“MAGIC CITY: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON” also features stand-out performances by Steven Strait; Christian Cooke; Jessica Marais; Yul Vazquez; Dominik Garcia-Lorido; Kelly Lynch and Elena Satine.
