Starz has just released a trailer for their retro drama starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Set in Miami Beach circa 1959, Magic City stars Morgan as Ike Evans, a luxury hotel owner who in order to secure his dream begrudgingly gets in bed with mob boss Ben “The Butcher” Diamond, all while his former showgirl wife Vera remains blissfully unaware.
The show also features Danny Huston as The Butcher and Olga Kurylenko as Morgan’s showgirl wife.
The show looks like it could be really good. It looks to be what The Playboy Club should have been, if it were on cable. Can’t wait to watch it. Magic City will premiere in the spring of 2012. Watch the trailer below.
