ORIGINAL #1 FILMING BOAT
THE VICE EFFECT
A Powerful International Influence
The 1980s. If only we could turn back the clock to the magical era and be part of and the production of the hottest television show in the world. Miami Vice remains bigger than life and the effects still resonate after 30 years throughout the international landscape and the streets of Miami. The original – and it was very original – has inspired Vin Diesel and Universal Studios to produce a reboot of Miami Vice for 2018. Miami Vice, starring Don Johnson, was the No. 1 hit television series of the 1980s. Thirty years later it remains popular in reruns; in 2014 El Ray, a major television network bought the rights to broadcast the series in South America.
Miami Vice was the catalyst for many A-list movie stars who found fame on the show, such as Bruce Willis, Julia Roberts, Leslie Nielsen, Laurence Fishburne, Chris Rock, and Ving Rhames. Other celebrities ranging from Willie Nelson to James Brown and G. Gordon Liddy made appearances on the show. Miami Vice was a powerful trendsetter with an international impact that today it is considered one of the most influential television series ever made. A television icon, it changed the international lifestyle and landscape.
The show had a direct influence on real-world fashion, music, culture and lifestyle trends throughout the world. People magazine called it the first show to look genuinely new and different since color TV was invented. Rolling Stone magazine and People featured Miami Vice stars Don Johnson and Philp Michael Thomas on their covers, an honor for any celebrity. Season one of Miami Vice was nominated for 15 Emmy Awards and the theme song, produced and written by Jan Hammer, won a 1985 Grammy Award. Never has there been a more powerful or successful television sensation that has swept the globe and captured the imaginations of multiple generations the way Miami Vice has done.
