While Starz aired an early preview of their new drama series Magic City already, the Mitch Glazer created drama makes its official debut on the pay cable network this Friday night. These clips offer a look at a few different angles of the drama, which is set in the late 50’s at a luxurious hotel in Miami.
?Magic City stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Danny Huston, Steven Strait, Christian Cooke, and Olga Kurylenko, and follows Ike Evans, the man who owns and runs the Miramar Playa Hotel. He’s indebted to Ben “The Butcher” Diamond, who financed the hotel.
?This first video shows Ike doing his best to ensure that people live the dream while staying at the fancy hotel. Apparently the dream smells like the ocean and is cold enough to wear your fur...?
In this one, Ike’s son Danny tries to convince his friend Mercedes to be his date. It seems kind of obvious that he’s into her, but there’s probably a line drawn somewhere between the son of the owner and one of the maids...?
Finally, this clip gives us an idea of the situation Ike is in with “The Butcher,” who may seem relaxed, but is clearly in control of the situation...
Starz is set to air Magic City this Friday night at 10:00 p.m., filling the recently vacated spot once held by Spartacus: Vengeance, which wrapped up last Friday night. If you don’t want to wait until Friday to see the first episode of Magic City, Starz has already posted the entire episode (slightly edited) here.
