All the glitz and glamour of Miami Beach circa 1959 is captured in Magic City, the highly stylized period drama and newest entry to the sixties themed genres. (Think Mad Men meets the Mob in Miami).

Production designer and architect Carlos Barbosa and set decorator Scott Jacobsen literally channeled Miami Mid Century Modern (known as MiMo) hotels of the period such as the Eden Roc, Deauville (where producer Mitch Glazer worked as a cabana boy) and the famed Fontainebleu. Heavily influenced by the late architect Morris Lapidus who transformed the shoreline of Miami with his work, the production team literally transformed a warehouse into a grand hotel in a mere five months.
