Miami Vice Revival

Vin Diesel is working on a Miami Vice reboot for NBC.

Vin Diesel is working on a Miami Vice reboot for NBC.

In summary: I, Sam Haine, in complete presence of mind and totally sober, have no flipping interest in a Miami Vice reboot run by the people who have brought us the Fast N’ Furious the series or Shana Waterman (24: Live Another Day, Wayward Pines).  I don’t care if it’s set in the modern day, some cyberpunk future or worse a complete throwback series set in 1980’s Miami. No. No; No way, Charlie.

The first project to spawn from Vin Diesel’s deal with Universal Television and will be penned by Peter Mcmanus (The Mist: the TV series).  Has anyone even seen the new Mist television series? Exactly.

I’d rather watch a 3hour lip reading seminar hosted by Stephen Hawking than talk about this anymore.

Listen – I like Vin Diesel. I like how he’s remained the sincere D&D playing and life loving kid in a candy store, he’s been his whole career. I’ve liked a good number of his films and at times I’m either pleasantly surprised or thoroughly entertained by his films. However, I’m not buying into this one.

Instead I would suggest you go and binge on classic episodes of Miami Vice instead. Miami Vice is an American television crime drama series created by Anthony Yerkovich and executive produced by Michael Mann for NBC. The series starred Don Johnson as James “Sonny” Crockett and Philip Michael Thomas as Ricardo “Rico” Tubbs, two Metro-Dade Police Department detectives working undercover in Miami. The series ran for five seasons on NBC from 1984 to 1989. The USA Network began airing reruns in 1988, and broadcast an originally unaired episode during its syndication run of the series on January 25, 1990.
