Miss Golden Globe of 2003, Andy Garcia's daughter Dominik Garcia-Lorido, is one of the stars of the new TV show Magic City whom HFPA members met when they visited the set in Miami.
Dominik, 28, co-stars with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Olga Kurylenko, Danny Huston and Kelly Lynch in the series, which is set in Miami Beach in 1958-59. “We are proud to host the HFPA on our set,” Mitch Glazer, writer and creator and of the upcoming TV show Magic City, greets members, the first journalists to visit the set.
The Starz-produced show is shot entirely in a purpose-built hotel, complete with a fully functional lobby, bar, barber's shop, offices, a swimming pool, guest rooms and marble bathrooms. Everything has been meticulously designed to convey the look and mood of the '50’s.
Hundreds of people, worked twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week to build the sets. “Magic City’s sets are the largest ever built in the state of Florida,” says Mitch Glazer, writer and producer of Magic City, who showed HFPA members around the set
The show’s plot revolves around Ike Evans, the owner of Miramar Playa Hotel, who has to fight for his family and the hotel when he gets entangled with the mob.
