More "Magic" Coming With Early Second Season Renewal of Upcoming STARZ Original Series, "Magic City"

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., March 20, 2012 -- Starz Chief Executive Officer, Chris Albrecht, announced a 10-episode, second season order for the upcoming STARZ Original series, "Magic City," ahead of its April 6 worldwide premiere at 10PM ET/PT. "Magic City" is a stylish, cinematic drama created and executive produced by Mitch Glazer ("The Recruit," "Scrooged"), starring 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).

"'Magic City' is a beautifully written, superbly acted, and visually stunning series, and we feel the quality of the work accomplished deserves a second season," said Albrecht. "It has already been sold in more than 70 territories worldwide, and represents the kind of premium entertainment the Starz brand is seeking to create."

Mitch Glazer said, "Season One of "Magic City" has been the most fulfilling and complete creative experience of my life. I'm thrilled to continue spinning tales of Miami Beach 1959 for Starz!"

"Magic City" production of season two is expected to begin later this year, with an on-air return expected on STARZ in 2013.

About "Magic City"

Set in Miami's Miramar Playa Hotel leading into the new year of 1959, hotelier Ike Evans (Morgan) conjures up 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.

The alluring drama features an ensemble cast that also features Steven Strait (City Island), Christian Cooke (Cemetery Junction), Jessica Marais ("Packed to the Rafters"), Yul Vazquez (The A-Team, American Gangster),

Along with Glazer, Geyer Kosinski (Changeling, The Astronaut Farmer) serves as executive producer. Ed Bianchi ("Deadwood") was co-executive producer and Dwayne Shattuck ("Mad Men") was a producer on the series.

Creator Mitch Glazer grew up in the glamorous, ominous world of late 1950s Miami Beach, frequenting the lobbies of iconic Miami hotels.
