'Magic City: The Complete First Season' Blu-ray Announced and Detailed

Posted Thu Jun 28, 2012 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The first eight episodes of the sizzling mob drama will heat up Blu-ray in October.

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is working on 'Magic City: The Complete First Season' for Blu-ray on October 2.

Dangerous and decadent, “Magic City” begins in 1959, in Miami’s Miramar Playa Hotel where hotelier Ike Evans (Jeffrey Dean Morgan, 'Watchmen,' 'Texas Killing Fields') is conjuring up ways to finance his dream. He has essentially sold his soul to the devil: mob boss Ben “The Butcher” Diamond (Danny Huston, 'The Kingdom'). Ike’s wife Vera (Olga Kurylenko, 'Quantum of Solace'), a former showgirl, and his three children think he is an honorable man, but he just can’t break his pact with the most notorious criminal in town. So Ike’s life is a façade: his home and his business must be kept separate – but does he have the sleight of hand to pull it off?

The 3-disc Blu-ray set will feature 1080p video, a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: Starz Studios: MAGIC CITY, The Cars of MAGIC CITY, The Style of MAGIC CITY, Building An Empire, The Golden Age of Music, and Miami Beach: The Real MAGIC.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $59.99.
