Ike Evans risks everything in a life and death battle to rid his Miramar Playa Hotel of the mob and Ben "The Butcher" Diamond. Ike's dangerous plan to defeat Ben takes Ike from Havana's glamorous casinos to dealings with a new devil - Ben's boss in the Chicago Outfit. Ike's wife Vera gets a second chance at her former dancing glory, while sons Stevie and Danny drift farther from Ike -- Stevie toward the power and rewards of Ben's dark world, Danny into the moral righteousness of State's Attorney Jack Klein. Changes in Castro's Cuba ripple to the shores of Miami Beach, and a new world order begins to tear the Evans family apart. Even if Ike's long-shot gamble to take back his hotel succeeds, will the price of victory be too high?
"Magic City" stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Olga Kurylenko, Danny Huston, Kelly Lynch, Steven Strait, Christian Cooke, Jessica Marais, Yul Vazquez, Dominik Garcia-Lorido and Elena Satine. Joining the cast this season is Academy Award Nominee James Caan, Esai Morales, Sherilyn Fenn, Rick Ross and Jamie Harris.
