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.

Magic City is great show, it needs to be on another network other than Starz…..Showtime or HBO would have been a much better fit for this. Wonder how it ended up on Starz in the first place. I rented the 1st season from Netflix, never heard of it before that. Apparently, Starz didn’t do much to promote this series……..

I love Magic City and am sorely disappointed that Starz decided to cancel. Really hoping they will reconsider or another network will pick it up. Come on Starz! Keep a really good show, for once !

Really disappointed. The show really took me back to growing up in South Florida in the late 50’s and early 60’s. I hope another network picks it up. Too many show are POOR COPIES of each other. It was nice to see something original. It stinks!!!! Starz should have given them at least one more year!!!!

starz exec’s need to find a new career, hopefully another network will pick this series up and run with it, I guarantee the ratings will greatly improve.

We really enjoyed Magic City. We very much looked forward to the second season and are VERY disappointed that it has been canceled. Maybe USA or TNT could pick it up the way that Southland was picked up when NBC canceled it? I hope so…..hear that Mitch Glazer… the show with other networks….please!

Magic City was one of the best shows on television! If premium channels continue to cancel the most interesting shows (like Boss), I will cancel my subscription.

I used to watch the Sopranos, which was great, until I started watching Magic City. I thought Magic City was the best serious on TV.


David August 14, 2013 at 12:30 pm

This show is the best on T.V. bar none Starz must be run by a bunch of freakin idiots!!! They also cancelled Boss which was a awesome show. Whoever owns starz network SELL THE STOCK SELL SELL NOW !!!!!

Unbelievable that Magic City has been canceled! The acting is superb & the story lines are riveting! It was the best show on TV. They just don’t give great shows a chance these days. It was such a great show, who is making these stupid decisions? It is just so sad that they deprive people of good programs & continue with such trash on tv.
