Before production started, the idea was to do all or most of the exterior filming in Los Angeles, and pass it off to viewers as urban Miami—an approach put into practice two decades later during the filming of CSI: Miami. But instead, nearly all filming, both exterior and interior, was done in Miami and Florida. Many episodes of Miami Vice were filmed in the South Beach  section of La Maison - Blank & Jones - Milchbar // Seaside Season 6 (File) Beachan area which, at the time, was blighted by poverty and crime, with its demographic so deteriorated that there "simply weren't many people on the street.
Ocean Drive's hotels were filled with elderly, mostly Jewish retirees, many of them frail, subsisting on meager Social Security payments.
They were filming all over Miami Beach. They could film in the middle of the street. There was literally nobody there. There were no cars parked in the street".
Some street corners of South Beach were so run down that the production crew actually decided to repaint the exterior walls of some buildings before filming. The crew went to great lengths to find the correct settings and props. Bobby Roth recalled, "I found this house that was really perfect, but the color was sort of beige.
The art department instantly painted the house gray for me. Even on feature films people try to deliver what is necessary but no more. At Miami Vice they start with what's necessary and go beyond it. Miami Vice is to some degree credited with causing a wave of support for the preservation of Miami's famous Art Deco architecture in the mids to early s;  and quite a few of those buildings, among them many beachfront hotels, have been renovated since filming, making that part of South Beach one of South Florida 's most popular places for tourists and celebrities.
Other places commonly filmed in the series included scenes around Broward and Palm Beach counties. Interior scenes were initially supposed to be filmed at Universal Studios in Los Angeles, but to simplify cross-country logistics, the decision was made to use the facilities of Greenwich Studios  in North Miami instead, and only carry out post-production in L. In a few scenes particularly in earlier episodes, Greenwich Studios' rear loading dock is repeatedly portrayed as the back room of the Gold Coast Shipping building, where the offices of the vice squad are located.
Miami Vice is noted for its innovative use of stereo broadcast music, particularly countless pop and rock hits of the s and the distinctive, synthesized instrumental music of Jan Hammer. Jan Hammer credits executive producer Michael Mann with allowing him great creative freedom in scoring Miami Vice.
The theme song was so popular that it also garnered two Grammy Awards in During the show's run, three official soundtrack albums with original music from the episodes were released. Hammer has released several albums with music from the series; among them are Escape from TelevisionSnapshotsand after many requests from fans, Miami Vice: The Complete Collection The clothes worn on Miami Vice had a significant influence on men's fashion.
They popularized, if not invented, the " T-shirt under Armani jacket"—style,  and popularized Italian men's fashion in the United States. Similarly, Crockett's perpetually unshaven appearance sparked a minor fashion trend, inspiring men to wear designer stubble at all times. The abundance of pastel colors on the show reflected Miami's Art-deco architecture. During its five-year run, consumer demand for unstructured blazers, shiny fabric jackets, and lighter pastels increased.
It was initially named the "Miami Device" by Wahlbut in the end the company wanted to avoid a trademark infringement lawsuit. Miami Vice also popularized certain brands of firearms and accessories. Several firearms never before seen on TV were featured prominently for the first time in the show, including the Glock 17 pistol. Even heavy guns came to use, as Zito is seen maneuvering an M60 machine gun from a roof top in the episode "Lombard".
The fake Ferraris were removed from the show, with Freak Mountain Ramblers - Church donating two brand new Testarossas as replacements.
Originally "El Viejo" was set to be the third-season premiere, but studio executives found the Daytona's destruction would serve as a more dramatic opening to the season. Don Johnson's contract-holdout at the start of the season also played a part, delaying filming to the point where "El Viejo" could not be finished in time for the season premiere. The series' crew also used a third Testarossa look-alike, which was the stunt car. Throughout the series, I Am A Sound - Cool Devices - Double Ep Crockett lived on an Endeavour sailboat named the St.
Vitus' Dance while in the pilot episodeCrockett is seen on a foot Cabo Rico sailboat. The allure of the sailboats was such that the Endeavour 42 used for the season of Miami Vice was sold to a midwest couple, while the Endeavour 40, was sold to a chartering service in Fort Lauderdale.
At the same time, Endeavour was building a new 42 for the season of Miami Vice. In the pilot episode, and for the first season,  Crockett pilots a Chris Craft Stinger X — a foot deep-v offshore racing boat. For the other four Stingers, Chris-Craft showed the production crew a colour scheme that included the red — however, since Michael Mann decided that the colour red was to never show up on the show so a blue colour scheme was instead chosen.
The Stingers used on the show were not free from Chris-Craft. In fact, the boats had some serious warranty issues.
These issues caused the production team to switch to using Wellcraft 38 Scarab KVs for the remainder of the show. As a result of the attention the Scarab 38 KV garnered on Miami ViceWellcraft received "an onslaught of orders", increasing sales by twenty-one percent in one year.
Afterward, Johnson was frequently seen arriving to work in it. Johnson won the Offshore World Cup in and continued racing into the s. Scripts were loosely based on actual crimes that occurred in Miami over the years. Many episodes focused on drug trafficking for which real-life Miami was a main hub and entrance point into North America in the early s.
Other episodes were based on crimes such as firearms trafficking,  for which Miami was equally a gateway for sales to Latin America, as well as the Miami River Cops scandal a real police corruption ring that involved narcotic thefts, drug dealing and murdersstreet prostitution, serial home burglaries,  crimes committed by Cuban immigrants to Miami following the Mariel Boatlift and Yakuza and Mafia activity in Miami,  The series also took a look at political issues such as the Northern Ireland conflict the drug war in South America e.
Personal issues also arose: Crockett is separated from his wife Caroline Belinda Montgomery in the pilot and divorced in the fourth episode, and later his second P.o.y.l - Pepper - Pepper Caitlin Davies Sheena Easton is killed by one of his enemies. In The Jelly Bean Bandits - Bandit Planet three episodes "Mirror Image", "Hostile Takeover", and "Redemption in Blood", a concussion caused by Mia - Gorki - Het Beste Van Gorki explosion caused Crockett to believe he was his undercover alter ego Sonny Burnett, a drug dealer.
Tubbs had a running, partly personal vendetta with the Calderone family, a member of which had ordered the death of his brother Rafael, a New York City police detective.
In the first seasons Weg - Brigitte Kaandorp - Thuis tone was often very light, especially when comical characters such as police informants Noogie Lamont Charlie Barnett and Izzy Moreno Martin Ferrero appeared.
Later the content was usually dark and cynical, often bordering on the existentialwith Crockett and Tubbs fighting corruption, and storylines emphasizing the aspect of human tragedy behind a crime. Typically, the darker episodes had no denouementeach episode ending abruptly after a climax involving violence and death, often giving the episodes especially in later seasons a despairing and sometimes nihilistic feel, despite the trademark glamor and conspicuous wealth.
Given its idiosyncratic "dark" feel and touch, Miami Vice is frequently cited as an example of made-for-TV Neo-noir. Michael Mann, who served as executive producer for the majority of the show's five-year run, is often credited with being one of the most influential Neo-noir directors.
During its Various - Miami Vice II (New Music From The Television Series run, Miami Vice underwent repeated very noticeable changes in its formula and content. Between seasons one and two, however, these Retrocodex (Remaster) - Les Dupont - Dark Sides (File) were mostly subtle and involved details such as the degree of perfection with which color shades of scene backdrops, props and clothing were matched to each other.
For its third season in —87 after the cancellation of Knight Riderthe show moved from its traditional time slot of 10PM on Friday nights to 9PM, which now put it up against perennial Top 10 show Dallas. In addition to losing the battle against new timeslot rival Dallas, the general tone of season 3 episodes started to become more serious and less lighthearted than in previous seasons.
Comedic scenes and subplots became distinctly rare. This shift in tone was also reflected in the series' fashions, color schemes, and its choice of music. The cast started wearing pronouncedly dark clothing and even earthtones, which had famously been avoided by executive producer Michael Mann in seasons one and two.
Color palettes of scene backdrops started becoming much darker as well, with pastels replaced by harsher-appearing shades of neon. By Season 4, most of the original writers had left the series. Stories and story arcs included a courtship and marriage between Sonny Crockett Don Johnson and Caitlin Davies Sheena Eastonand a plot in which Crockett developed amnesia during which he Various - Miami Vice II (New Music From The Television Series himself for his drug dealer alter ego, and becomes a hitman.
Moreover, Caroline Crockett, Sonny's first wife, as well as his son Billy reappear briefly. Jan Hammer departed from the Moss - Black Flea - Black Flea at the end of the fourth season, having already handed much of the weekly scoring workload during the season over to John Petersen. The tone of many season 4 episodes grew lighter again, albeit sometimes veering off into the bizarre, e. Fashions and scene backdrops largely reassumed the pastel hues of seasons 1 and 2, and the choice of music became more varied again.
Hopes by the producers of propitiating former and remaining fans this way only materialized very mutedly and reception was lukewarm, as evidenced by the show's still declining ratings during season four. The fifth season — saw the show return to its original timeslot, 10PM on Friday nights and took the show on a yet more serious tone,  with storylines becoming dark and gritty — enough so that even some of the most loyal fans were left perplexed.
After still-deteriorating ratings during the fourth season, NBC had originally planned to order just a shortened fifth season of only 13 episodes, but eventually settled for another full run, which was, either way, going to be the final season.
At the beginning of season five, Olivia Brown recalled, "The show was trying to reinvent itself. True Hollywood Storyafter the fifth season, it was all just " Despite its status as the "series finale", there were three episodes that did not air "World of Trouble", "Miracle Man", and "Leap of Faith"which appeared during the June re-runs as "Lost Episodes". It has since been run by other networks in syndication with the fifth-season episodes.
Reruns of the series later aired on the FX from — Then in the cable network TV Land aired episodes for about a year. The same year the series began airing on the Sleuth network in the United States until as well as Centric. Many actors, actresses, musicians, comedians, athletes, celebrities, appeared throughout the show's five-season run. They played many Ted Gärdestad - Sol, Vind Och Vatten (Det Bästa) roles from drug dealers to undercover cops to madams.
The full list can be seen at the link above, as this is just a partial list. Other personalities included auto executive Lee Iacocca  and Watergate conspirator G. Gordon Liddy. Final Airing on NBC: Critics have objected to the show's usage of violence by dressing it with pretty photography. More often than not, they're holed up in a crummy room somewhere, wearing jeans with holes in them, watching some beat-up warehouse in a godforsaken part of town through a pair of dented binoculars".
Television critics Alan Sepinwall and Matt Zoller Seitz ranked Miami Vice as the 51st greatest American television series of all time in their book titled TV The Bookwith Seitz stating how the show was more influenced by s art house cinema from Europe than by any other contemporary television drama: " Miami Vice superimposed 'ripped-from-the-headlines' details about drug smuggling, arms dealing, and covert war onto a pastel noir dreamscape.
It gave American TV its first visionary existential drama". Miami Vice was a groundbreaking police program of the s. The show has been so influential that the style of Miami Vice has often been borrowed or alluded to by much of contemporary pop culture in order to indicate or emphasize the s Freak Mountain Ramblers - Church. Its influence as a popular culture icon was and is still seen decades after appearing.

Another example would be the film Boogie Nightswhich takes place in the s. The Ils Sont Soufflés !… - Mary-Christine Tchad* - Le Petit Rhinocéros progresses into the s and closes with Mark Wahlberg wearing a white linen jacket, sleeves rolled up, and a bright pink shirt tucked into white linen pants.
This informs the audience the year is now somewhere in the mids due to the massive popularity of Miami Vice from — It is set in a stylized s Miami inspired fictional city named "Vice City". Two undercover police officers appear in a police sports car within the game when the player obtains a three-star wanted level.
The two officers, one white and one black, resemble the two leading characters of Miami Vice. In the prequel, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Storiesthere are two officers in the multiplayer mode named Cracker and Butts, a parody of Crockett and Tubbs; these characters share the same role as the undercover cops in Vice City.
Many of the fashion styles and trends popularized by the TV show, such as fast cars and speed boats, unshaven beard stubble, a T-shirt under pastel suits, no socks, rolled up sleeves, boat shoes and Ray Ban sunglasses symbolize the stereotypical image Various - Miami Vice II (New Music From The Television Series s fashion and culture.
The show also had a lasting impact on Miami itself. It drew a large amount of media attention to the beginning revitalization of the South Beach and Art Deco District areas of Miami Beachas well as other portions of Greater Miamiand increased tourism and investment.
Even 30 years after Miami Vice first aired, it was still responsible for its share of tourist visits to the city. This allowed people to relate the county government to recognized notions and images of Miami, many of which were first popularized by Miami Vice. The music was difficult to source the rights to and acquire permission to use.
