'Miami Vice' Reboot From Vin Diesel in the Works at NBC

I recently started rewatching Miami Vice just because and it’s really great knowing that a show like Miami Vice has replayability in that I can watch it over and over again and just feel good. No way that’s happening with this recrapboot.

Yeah, it was supposed to be a spin-off which never went further. 

I personally enjoyed Leap of Faith, and probably would've watched the full series if it were a thing. 

I enjoyed that episode too and would have watched the spinoff it had have eventuated.

Can't find the storyline of the reboot.. who will be tbe heroes? where to read? Pls

Nothing has come out yet. It's probably still in pre-production, the writing and designing stage and possibly beginning of casting stage but who knows. People are secretive on these sort of things, we usually don't know anything until they start filming.

I'm not expecting anything at all. It'll probably get scrapped. Maybe. Hopefully. Please God. :)

If truly done well its a great idea and could be a great success. However its far more likely it will be screwed up.

The first bad sign is that it is being considered as a prime time show for NBC. In order to be done right it needs to be an HBO show.

Also, if they attempt a true reboot where they attempt to recast the old characters like with Hawaii 5-0 it will never work under any circumstances. It should be a MV "Next Generation" concept as put forth in a earlier post in this thread with maybe Crocketts son teaming with Eddies son. Members of the original cast can show up from time to time as recurring guest stars. Maybe one of them can even be a regular as the Lieutenant (Gina, Trudy, Switek ?) 

I appreciate Vin Deisels fanboy enthusiasm in wanting to bring back a favorite show of his youth and I can identify with that, but it is an undertaking that is so hard to get right and so easy to get wrong.

Not holding my breath that it will be good, as ive said I don't think it can be done right as a prime time show. Has to be HBO/Showtime, so they've gotten off on the wrong foot out of the gate in this regard imo.

Have no choice but to wait & see.

There are some great ideas in this thread. I like the sound of Crockett's son, Eddie's son, and later on in the season or maybe at the beginning of season 2 they can meet Rico's son who's just a street cop under the name "Ricardo Calderone", and become a three-some. 

I think Gina would make the perfect Lieutenant. A woman with a powerful role would suit the 21st century and make the feminists happy. 

A little part of me has feelings and hopes that Vin Diesel visited this forum at least once, for ideas and such. To get more information on the original to help develop their reboot.

They should also give it the Synthwave vibe. Like Drive, or Kung Fury without the 80s pisstake. There hasn't been a Synthwave TV show yet to the best of my knowledge, so it could be new and amazing for that whole scene. And a lot of the Retro Synthwave scene are very much into Miami Vice, my generation re-popularised Miami Vice.

Stranger things have happened, but, erm, no. I don't think Vin Diesel is the kind of guy who would get his ideas from a humble web fan forum. I would guess that what's keeping him up at night isn't how to make old fans happy, but how to adapt Miami Vice to sell it to the Fast & Spurious generation.

Realistically though... why would he go on a web forum for research. If NBC is on board, they will probably give him access to a whole vault of original material for research from back in the day, which will eclipse anything we'll ever discuss on here.

The eddie´s son would be a great idea after 5 or 10 years after the show has ended. Not 30 years after. I bet the MV theme will be there, like in H-5.0, revamped. And the soapopera sequenced memories wouldnt happen too.  Hmmm...Sonny Crockett crippled in a wheelchair after this years after he got shot in action....Ok...DROP THE GUN AND DONT SHOOT AT ME!!!!  Well...so do you think Sonny would be running around holding a gun after 30 years? I think, no way jose....

Why not now? He'd be in his mid 30s being born in 1984. Perfect age IMO.
