Here’s a sneak peek at the first five minutes of Episode One of Magic City Season Two just released by STARZ Media. We see Ike Evans (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) in gaol (jail) where we left him at the end of season one being arrested. We also see Ike’s son, Stevie (Steven Strait), who has embarked on an affair with Ben Diamond’s (Danny Huston) wife, Lily Diamond, (played by Aussie Jessica Marais) at the Miramar Playa Hotel hotel being called over to Ben and Lily’s table by the pool. It’s not looking great for Ike’s family right now! Glamboyant “Oblivion” star Olga Kurylenko returns as Ike’s wife, Vera, a former entertainer who is being drawn back into the world of dancing and we also see the introduction of new character Sy Berman, played by James Caan, a Chicago mob boss.
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?
