Miami has always been a city of sun, sin and sexiness, but it was the height of glamour when it first became a hotspot in the '50s, and that's when Starz's new original drama series "Magic City" takes place.
"Magic City" doesn't premiere until later this week (Fri., Apr. 6, 10 p.m. on Starz), but we've got the full pilot episode right here for you to watch early.

It's New Year's Eve, ringing in 1959, and for hotelier Ike Evans (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), it's the busiest day of the year ... or at least, it should be with Frank Sinatra playing his club. But with union picket lines threatening to ruin the big night, Ike has to make some tough decisions to keep the Miramar Playa, his sparkly gem of a hotel, from shutting down, all while making sure the customers are imbibing, his kids are behaving and his wife, Vera (Olga Kurylenko), is smiling.
But Ike didn't build his shining palace alone -- we soon find out that he's in pretty deep with Ben "The Butcher" Diamond (Danny Huston), one of the city's big mob bosses. Can he save the Miramar Playa without getting blood on his hands?
"Magic City" premieres Fri., Apr. 6, 10 p.m. on Starz.
