L.O.V.E discovering a new TV show.
Magic City is set in 1959 around Miami's luxurious Maramar Playa Hotel - Magic City indeed!
Jeffrey Dean Morgan plays the main character Ike Evans, the rather cool and dashing owner of the hotel
who makes a deal with the mob to ensure the success of his glamorous hotel.
The visual styling of this show is intoxicating.
The story line is not mind blowing and you know what to expect however
it is very seductive, with period details that are amazing. Oh and the acting is just as impressive.
The cast and characters are really well put together with a lot of fairly new faces.
Along with Jeffrey Dean Morgan (remember him from Gray's Anatomy?) as Ike is,
and what I didn't realise until two episodes in that the character of Mob wife Lily
is played by Australia's own Jessica Marais (Packed to the Rafters)!
She is really good in this and worlds away from her Aussie TV performance.

Not sure when it will hit our screens here but keep an eye open for it!
