Vin Diesel is working with NBC to reboot one of the biggest TV cop shows from the 1980’s. With a little help of his ‘Fast and Furious’ style, ‘Miami Vice’ may soon be back on the streets of south Florida.

It’s still to be seen how closely the new version will mirror the 1980’s lives of Crockett and Tubbs, or who will portray the iconic detectives. You can be sure there will be some chases that may remind you of some scenes from the ‘Fast and Furious’ series of movies.

Vin Diesel is one of the executive producers of the show, along with Chris Morgan. The two worked together on the “Fast and Furious” movies. Shana Waterman, who produced “24: Live Another Day” and “Wayward Pines” will also be one of the show’s executives.

The show has already been in the works for several months and is slated for the 2018-19 television season.

The original series also created fashion and music trends during its five year run.

Along with the looks of the detectives, the music from the series included some songs that became smash hits. The theme of the show, written by Jan Hammer, went to be a number one single. The show also brought us “In the Air Tonight” by Phil Collins, “You Belong To The City” and “Smugglers Blues” by Glenn Frey and “Better Be Good To Me” by Tina Turner, just to make a few.
