Introducing Crockett and Tubbs. . . Miami's coolest undercover cops!
This is the original pilot of the smash hit T.V. series 'Miami Vice', starring Don Johnson as Sonny Crockett. A ten year veteran of the Miami Vice Department; he lives on, and works undercover from his yacht in the Marina with his pet alligator Elvis. Phillip Michael Thomas portrays Ricardo Tubbs , a black New York street cop, who burned his bridges on a mission of vengeance in South Florida to confront his brothers murderer.
A common purpose forces these two dissimilar characters together, out of which is forged an unlikely partnership that takes them through the labyrinths of South Florida corruption...drugs, prostitution, gambling and extortion. Filmed entirely on location in Florida, 'Miami Vice' is a cop series with a difference. It contrasts the wealth and high living of the sunshine state with the underworld that infiltrates at every level.
