1st September 2016

Virgin Media is bringing another critically acclaimed US TV show from STARZ – Magic City – to the UK, exclusively for its TV customers to watch on demand from today, 1 September.

Bringing glitz, glamour and gangsters to the UK this autumn, Magic City promises to be an addictive drama told through a star-studded cast with sharp suits and big dreams. Set in 1959 Miami, Florida, shortly after the Cuban Revolution, Magic City tells the story of Ike Evans, the owner of Miami's most glamorous hotel, the Miramar Playa. Evans is forced to make an ill-fated deal with Miami mob boss Ben Diamond to ensure the success of his glitzy establishment.

The star-studded cast includes:

  • Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Grey’s Anatomy, The Walking Dead), as Ike Evans
  • Danny Huston – who received a Golden Globe nomination for his role in the show – (The Constant Gardener, Birth, The Aviator), as Ben Diamond
  • Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace, Hitman, Oblivion), as Vera Evans

Magic City will be available to Virgin Media customers as a full binge-worthy boxset, with seasons 1 and 2 available to watch from today. Virgin Media now boasts a bursting boxset library, featuring over 5,000 hours of TV shows – all available for Virgin ‘Full House TV’ (previously known as XL TV) customers at no extra charge.

Magic City forms part of a successful partnership and an exclusive licensing deal between Virgin Media and Starz Digital, the global digital and on demand licensing arm of US cable network, Starz.

David Bouchier, Chief Digital Entertainment Officer at Virgin Media, said: “Virgin TV has been going from strength to strength this year adding new services and bucketful’s of box sets.  Magic City is our latest, gripping, exclusive show. With many more exclusives set to come, alongside our new V6 box and original programming of our own, we’re just getting started. ”
