Oh boy, I’m hope Ross doesn’t ruin one of my favorite new shows.
For those who don’t know Magic City premiered last year and was a instant smash, and became another winner for Starz Network alongside Spartacus.
Since Magic City takes place in Miami in the 1950s, I guess the creators of the show figure it would be a good idea to include one of the biggest names in Miami to help draw some more urban viewers to the show, the way BOSS did with T.I. and Board Walk Empire did with Michael Kenneth Williams.
I’ve never seen Rick Ross act, so I don’t know if he’s any good, hopefully they kept his dialog short.
That aside though season 2 looks like things are going to get really crazy, can’t wait.
About Magic City
Miami Beach, 1959.
As Ike Evans rings in the New Year at his luxurious Miramar Playa Hotel, Havana falls to Castro’s rebels. It’s a turbulent time in Miami, but it’s THE place to be. The Kennedys, the mob and the CIA all hold court here. And Ike, he’s the star of his hotel.
But everything comes at a price.
To finance his dream, he sold his soul to mob boss Ben “The Butcher” Diamond. Ike’s wife Vera, a former showgirl, and his three kids think he’s an honorable man, but he can’t break his pact with the devil. His life is a façade.
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 family 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 Magic City.
