"Magic City" Season 2 has been ordered and returns on Starz in 2013.

"Magic City" (Starz TV show) centers around a hotel in the heart of sexy, exciting Miami at the dawn of the 1960s. As Frank Sinatra rings in a new year in the grand ballroom of Miami Beach's most luxurious dream palace—the Miramar Hotel—its visionary leader, Ike Evans, must deal with the Mob, his complicated family and a city in the midst of dramatic change as Fidel Castro takes control of Cuba, just 200 miles offshore. By day the hotel at the center of "Magic City" is all diving clown acts and cha-cha lessons by the pool, but at night Miami Beach reveals a darker truth. Dopers, dealers, strippers, gangsters and those who arrest them drift together to hear the top nightclub acts perform. Just beneath the surface, racial tensions stir. Ike must deal with all of this, even while global intrigue is brewing right under his roof.

The "Magic City" cast includes Jeffrey Dean Morgan ("Watchmen," "Grey's Anatomy") as Ike Evans, the cool, visionary force behind Miami Beach's newest hotel and a man with dangerous secrets; Olga Kurylenko ("Quantum of Solace," "Max Payne") as Ike's wife, Vera, a former showgirl who is deeply loyal to her husband and family; and Danny Huston ("X-Men Origins: Wolverine," "Clash of the Titans," "John Adams"), as Ben Diamond, Miami's most dangerous mobster.

The cast also stars Jessica Marais (Australia's "Packed to the Rafters," "Legend of the Seeker") as Ben's beautiful, caged wife, Lily; Steven Strait ("10,000 B.C.," "City Island"), as Ike's eldest son, Stevie; Christian Cooke ("Cemetery Junction," "Demons") as Danny, Ike's innocent, hard-working younger son; Dominik Garcia Lorido ("City Island," "The Lost City") as Mercedes, a maid in the Miramar Playa who has grown up with the Evans family in the shadow of the hotel; and Elena Satine ("Just Go With It") as Judi, a platinum blonde escort who works out of the Miramar Playa and helps Ike out from time to time.

Rounding out the stellar "Magic City" cast are Kelly Lynch ("Passion Play," "Drugstore Cowboy"), Michael Rispoli ("The Taking of Pelham 123," "The Weather Man"), Oscar-nominated actor Seymour Cassel ("Rushmore," "Crash"), and Yul Vazquez ("The A-Team," "American Gangster").

"Magic City" was conceived by writer/producer Mitch Glazer ("The Recruit," "Scrooged"), who is writing the first three episodes and eight episodes overall. The show is being produced by Media Talent Group, with its CEO Geyer Kosinski ("Going to California," "Hope & Faith," Beyond Borders) executive producing along with Tony To ("From the Earth to the Moon," "Band of Brothers").
