MIAMI BEACH HEATS UP WITH SERIES DEBUT OF "MAGIC CITY" ON FRIDAY, APRIL 6 AT 10PM ET/PT, EXCLUSIVELY ON STARZ

Set in the Glamorous Scene of 1950s Miami Beach, This Alluring Drama Stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Olga Kurylenko, and Danny Huston

Beverly Hills, Calif. - January 13, 2011 - Imagine Miami Beach on New Year's Eve, 1958. Ike Evans celebrates at his luxurious Miramar Playa Hotel. It's a tumultuous time in Miami and abroad as racial and religious segregation are at their pinnacle in the U.S., while 90 miles away in Cuba, Castro's rebels are closing in on Havana. Regardless, Miami is still THE place to be and the Miramar Playa is its coveted epicenter. The Kennedys, the mob and the CIA all hold court here and Ike, the man with the dream, is the star. But everything comes at a price. STARZ's newest Original drama series, "Magic City," will debut on Friday, April 6 at 10 pm ET/PT, exclusively on STARZ.

This alluring new STARZ Original drama stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen, "Grey's Anatomy," Dibbuk Box), Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace, Max Payne) and Danny Huston (The Kingdom, Children of Men, X-Men Origins: Wolverine). They star alongside an ensemble cast including Steven Strait (City Island), Christian Cooke (Cemetery Junction), Jessica Marais ("Packed to the Rafters"), Yul Vazquez (The A-Team, American Gangster), Dominik Garcia-Lorido (City Island), Kelly Lynch (Drugstore Cowboy, Charlie's Angels) and Elle Satine (Just Go With It).

The "Magic City" story continues into the new year of 1959 as Ike Evans (Morgan) conjures ways to finance his dream. He has essentially sold his soul to the devil, mob boss Ben "The Butcher" Diamond (Huston). Ike's wife Vera (Kurylenko), a former showgirl, and his three children think he is an honorable man, but he just can't break his pact with the most dangerous criminal in town. His life is a facade.

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 cabanas, while Miami's seedier residents and the law drift together to hear legendary singers, musicians and comics. As Ike's world threatens to implode, he fights for his family and the Miramar Playa, in the Magic City.

"Magic City" was created by writer and executive producer Mitch Glazer ("The Recruit," "Scrooged"), who grew up in the glamorous, ominous world of late 1950s Miami Beach, frequenting the lobbies of iconic hotels such as the Fountainbleau, Eden Roc and Deauville. Geyer Kosinski (Changeling, The Astronaut Farmer) also executive produces the series along with co-executive producer Ed Bianchi("Deadwood") and Emmy Award(R) winning producer Dwayne Shattuck ("Mad Men").
