BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., March 20 (UPI) -- Starz says it has ordered a second season of "Magic City" before Mitch Glazer's 1950s Miami Beach-set drama debuts next month.

Starz Chief Executive Officer Chris Albrecht said Tuesday a 10-episode, sophomore season is to go into production this year, airing in 2013.

Starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Olga Kurylenko and Danny Huston, the first season of the show is to begin April 6.

"'Magic City' is a beautifully written, superbly acted and visually stunning series, and we feel the quality of the work accomplished deserves a second season," Albrecht said in a statement. "It has already been sold in more than 70 territories worldwide, and represents the kind of premium entertainment the Starz brand is seeking to create."

Glazer called making Season 1 of "Magic City" "the most fulfilling and complete creative experience of my life."

"I'm thrilled to continue spinning tales of Miami Beach 1959 for Starz," he said.
