The fame associated with Miami Beach of late-1950s found existence on weekend night as the art deco-style Colony Theater rolled out the red carpet for a sneak peek associated with Magic City, the period TV production that releases on Starz from April 6 at 10 in the evening.
Shot on a wonderful set produced close to Miami International Airport last year, the show channels a passionate as well as thrilling time for Miami, along with wealth, energy, sex, the crowd and also the drop of Havana all actively playing roles in the plot. The act rotates around a resort called Miramar Playa Hotel, shaped after some famous hotels like the Fontainebleau and Eden Roc.
Magic City comes from the mind of originator, writer and executive producer Mitch Glazer, a graduate from the Miami Beach High School whose father was an engineer of opulent resorts on the seaside. He gets there with a few of the ensemble cast in golden ’50s vehicles to the twinkle of digital cameras.
Glazer said he sketched the plot through his personal experiences and those of his buddies. He expressed his emotions saying “Of all the things I have ever written in my life, this was the one that came closest to the page. The leap from your mind to the page to the screen – it is almost impossible to actually realize, and this is the closest. I am thrilled with these eight shows.”
He further added that the main challenge was to signify the time, 1958-59, with genuineness. “Starz understood to create this world it would take incredible support. It was period, it was location, quite a lot of building, and they just did not blink. They (designers) understood the only way to manifest it was to build it, took my memories and created the greatest Miami Beach Hotel, out near the airport,” said Glazer.
