Starz Original Series, ‘Magic City’, is already in its fourth episode of the new series. This new drama has assembled a promising list of ingredients which includes a swanky Miami hotel in the late ‘50s. This Drama takes place in Miami Beach, 1959. The main character, Ike Evans rings in the New Year at his luxurious Miramar Playa Hotel, Havana falls to Castro’s rebels. It’s a turbulent time in Miami, but it’s the place to be. Very public and famous figures like, The Kennedy’s, the mob and the CIA all hold court here…But Ike is the star of his own hotel. The background to the story goes into how Ike turned his dream of owning his own Hotel in a reality and it’s not exactly squeaky clean. In order to turn his dream into a reality, he had to “make a deal with the devil”. The devil in this series is Ben “The Butcher” Diamond, who is Miami’s ruling kind of the underworld. Ben has the crazed, blood-lust elegance of a Roman Emperor. Vera Evans is Ike’s wife and the center of his entire world. Vera’s background was very troubling, growing up in extremely deprived Holland, during World War II. Now Vera is determined to make a meaningful place for herself in Ike’s world and as a woman in 1959 America. These are a few key players in Ike Evans life, and while he may seem like an honorable man he can’t seem to break his pact with the devil.Unfortunately nothing at the Miramar Playa is what it seems and everything comes at a price.
