Miami Vice TV Show Celebrates 36th Anniversary Of Series Premiere

Starring Don Johnson as James “Sonny” Crockett and Phillip Michael Thomas as Ricardo “Rico” Tubbs, this crime drama was a massive hit, set in Miami Florida.  Often described as MTV with cops, it featured current hit songs by popular artists during the 1980s and the cinematography was sleek and movie-like.

 

 

The series ran for five seasons on NBC from September 16, 1984, to January 25, 1990. 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.
