Sonny Crockett and Ricardo ‘Rico’ Tubbs were the two cool cops in the 1980s who used a high-speed powerboat to go after the drug lords of Miami, accompanied by Jan Hammer’s synthesizer sounds (‘Crockett’s Theme’). Today Eye screens the pilot of the legendary TV series Miami Vice (1984-1989). Michael Mann was the producer who made it all happen.
