Plot Synopsis

As Ike Evans rings in the New Year at his luxurious Miramar Playa Hotel, Havana falls to Castro's rebels. It's a turbulent time in Miami, but it's THE place to be. The Kennedys, the mob and the CIA all hold court here. And Ike, he's the star of his hotel. But everything comes at a price. To finance his dream, he sold his soul to mob boss Ben "The Butcher" Diamond. Ike's wife Vera, a former showgirl, and his three kids think he's an honorable man, but he can't break his pact with the devil. His life is a facade. In fact, nothing at the Miramar Playa Hotel is what it seems. By day, it's diving clowns and cha-cha lessons. By night, escorts have secret liaisons with husbands in the family cabanas, while Miami's seedier residents and the law drift together to hear legendary singers, musicians and comics. As Ike's world threatens to implode, he fights for his family, and the Miramar Playa Hotel, in the Magic City. But Ike's dangerous plan to defeat Ben takes him from Havana's finest casinos to dealings with a new devil in Season 2 -- Sy Berman, Ben's boss in the Chicago Outfit. While wife Vera gets another chance at her former dancing glory, sons Stevie and Danny are drawn ever farther from Ike's domain. Stevie gravitates toward the power and opportunity of Ben's shadowy world, while Danny is lured by the moral righteousness of State's Attorney Jack Klein. Changes in Castro's Cuba ripple to the shores of Miami Beach, and a new world order begins to tear the Evans family apart. Starz aired the first episode as a sneak peek on Friday, March 30, 2012 at 11pm ET and then again for the official series premiere one week later on Friday, April 6, 2012 at 10pm ET. Season 2 is set to premiere on Friday, June 16, 2013 at 9pm ET on Starz, and will feature two new cast members: James Caan as Sy Berman, the head of the Chicago mob and Ben Diamond's boss -- and unbeknownst to Ben, Sy also has a secret connection to Ben's wife, Lily; and Esai Morales as Carlos 'El Tiburon' Ruiz, a former rebel who fought beside Castro, a hero to the Cubans and is now working to free Cuba from the man he once considered to be like a brother.
