Miami was apparently red hot in the late 1950s and not just because of the unrelenting Florida sun. In the news Starz series “Magic City,” Jeffrey Dean Morgan leads a show that puts the luxurious fictional Miramar Playa Hotel at the center of the action.
On Wednesday (Feb. 22), Starz released the first official cast picture and “muy caliente” is an understatement. In the photo (above), Morgan and co-stars Kelly Lynch, Steven Strait, Christian Cooke, Taylor Blackwell, Elena Satine, Jessica Marais, Dominik Garcia-Lorido, Yul Vasquez, and Danny Huston give the reigning retro hotties (the cast of “Mad Men”) a run for their money.
“Magic City” — with its swank surroundings, cute clothes and mob boss storyline sounds like it could at worst be some kind of “Pan Am”/“Boardwalk Empire” mashup. At best, though, it could be a really great show.
We’re hoping for the latter, of course. “Magic City” premieres on April 6.
