    Default "Magic City" TV Show Set in 1950s Miami Beach

    This one actually sounds kind of cool:

    Magic City, a series set in a fictional Miami Beach hotel in the late 1950s -- when the Rat Pack played and Fidel Castro took power in Cuba -- got the green light this week for 10 episodes from Starz Entertainment.


    Casting is set to start soon, and production will begin in 2011, though it's still unclear how much, if any, of the series will be filmed in Miami. The show is set to air on the Starz cable channel in 2012.


    Writer and producer Mitch Glazer is intimately familiar with the subject matter: Growing up in Miami Beach in the 1950s and 60s, he accompanied his engineer father to work at the area's most glamorous hotels, including the Fontainebleau, Eden Roc, Deauville and Carillon.


    Glazer, a 1970 Miami Beach High grad and one-time Deauville cabana boy, said he remains obsessed with the era.

    Maria,

    I saw that in the Herald this morning.

    It could be way cool!
    .
    However, before the senate crackdown on organized crime, bookmaking was a cottage industry here. I wonder how much time will be spent on that??

    If it's authentic, they should cover EVERYTHING! Including the rampant racism & anti-semitism.

    This sounds like a rehash of Mad Men! But it does sound interesting.
