NBC is looking to reboot one of its most successful procedurals.
The network is teaming with Vin Diesel to develop a Miami Vice revival.
The project, which has been in the works for months, is being driven by Shana Waterman (24: Live Another Day, Wayward Pines), the former Fox Broadcasting executive who now serves as head of television for Diesel’s One Race Television production company. Miami Vice is the first effort to come out of Diesel’s first-look deal with Universal Television. Diesel and Waterman will executive produce alongside Chris Morgan and Ainsley Davies via the former’s overall deal with Universal Television. Peter Macmanus (Spike TV’s The Mist) will pen the script.
The world needs Miami Vice back now more than ever. In a world full of reboots, it’s a shame that Full House has 3 additional seasons that no one cares about before Miami Vice gets one. Blasphemy.
There is nothing Vin Diesel loves more than taking a ridiculous concept and making into the most important thing on Planet Earth. Vin Diesel was made to be an 80’s action star like Sylvester Stallone but unfortunately, he was born a little late.
SEE YAAA, CSI. There’s a new police procedural coming to TV and it involves sweet mullets and fast cars driving slow. Can’t wait.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you’re hyped for the return of Miami Vice. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
