Daniele Luppi is scoring the upcoming Starz series Magic City. The show is set in the 1950’s and centers around mobsters and other colorful characters in Miami Beach. Magic City stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Olga Kurylenko, Jessica Marais, Steven Strait, Christian Cooke, Kelly Lynch, Seymour Cassel and Danny Huston. The project is created by Mitch Glazer (The Recruit, Great Expectations). Dwayne Shattuck (Mad Men) and Ed Bianchi (The Killing, Deadwood) are producing alongside Glazer. The 10-episode drama is expected to premiere in 2012 on Starz. Luppi’s previous credits include the Quentin Tarantino-produced action film Hellride and the 2008 comedy Assassination of a High School President starring Bruce Willis. The composer also currently has an album out with Danger Mouse that features Jack White and Norah Jones.  Luppi and Danger Mouse hired original Italian session players from famous 1960’s scores by Ennio Morricone, Nino Rota and Nicola Piovani for the album.
