Starz picks up 1960s Miami drama

'Magic City' receives 10-episode order from pay cabler

Starz is mad for the men of 1960s Miami.

Cabler ordered 10 episodes of “Magic City,” which is centered at Miami’s Miramar Hotel in the early 1960s.

Mitch Glazer is the writer and producer of the drama.

“Magic City” will center on Miramar Hotel boss Ike Evans, whose complicated world includes the “dopers, dealers, strippers, gangsters and those who arrest them” as they drift together to hear top nightclub acts perform.

“Mitch has created a world populated with unforgettable characters and with a big, dynamic story,” Starz prexy-CEO Chris Albrecht said.

Glazer, who was born and raised in Miami Beach, said he grew up in similarly swank hotel lobbies.

“Miami in the early ’60s was a tropical crossroads, America’s Casablanca — the Rat Pack, CIA, the mob, JFK and anti-Castro warriors — all hanging out in the same Collins Avenue nightclub,” he said.

Glazer exec produces with Geyer Kosinski and Tony To. Show is set for a 2012 launch.
