Castro's rebels seize Havana as Ike Evans rings in the New Year of 1959 at his luxurious hotel in Miami Beach. Though by all appearances Ike is the star of his own show, he finds himself a virtual captive to his financier Ben "The Butcher" Diamond.
I came across this series by accident and it was a hit. It should have got more attention than it did. I would have enjoyed more seasons, but they wrapped up the show very well in the 2 seasons they made. Recommend it.
Though this series wasn't advertised the way most are, this series to me is dynamic, spellbinding. Its the making of Miami in the 1950's and compared to the start-up of Las Vegas, it has a pure - naive side to it Vegas didn't. Looking for Season 2.
