TV show description:
This dramatic TV series takes place in 1959, shortly after the Cuban Revolution, and is set in Miami Beach.

Isaac “Ike” Evans (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is the majority owner and boss of the Miramar Playa, Miami Beach’s premier resort. It’s a turbulent time in Miami, but it’s THE place to be. The Kennedys, the mob, and the CIA all hold court there.

Ike is the star of his hotel — but everything comes at a price. To finance his dream, he sold his soul to mob boss Ben “The Butcher” Diamond (Danny Huston). Ike’s second wife Vera (Olga Kurylenko), a former showgirl, and his three kids (Steven Strait, Christian Cooke, and Taylor Blackwell) think he’s an honorable man, but he can’t break his pact with the devil. His life is a façade.

In fact, nothing at the Miramar Playa is what it seems. By day, it’s diving clowns and cha-cha lessons. By night, escorts have secret liaisons with husbands in the family cabanas, while Miami’s seedier residents and the law drift together to hear legendary singers, musicians and comics. As his world threatens to implode, Ike fights for his family, and the Miramar Playa, in Magic City.

Series Finale

Episode #16 — The Sins of the Father
Ike and Ben’s future hangs on the outcome of the gambling bill. Klein weighs Ike’s offer to get The Butcher. Stevie and Lily face the end. Vera’s heart is broken.
First aired: August 9, 2013.
