MIAMI VICE Is Getting a TV Reboot From Vin Diesel

 

NBC is looking to reboot one of its most successful procedurals.

 

The network is teaming with Vin Diesel to develop a Miami Vice revival.

 

The project, which has been in the works for months, is being driven by Shana Waterman (24: Live Another Day, Wayward Pines), the former Fox Broadcasting executive who now serves as head of television for Diesel’s One Race Television production company. Miami Vice is the first effort to come out of Diesel’s first-look deal with Universal Television. Diesel and Waterman will executive produce alongside Chris Morgan and Ainsley Davies via the former’s overall deal with Universal Television. Peter Macmanus (Spike TV’s The Mist) will pen the script.

 

The Miami Vice reboot marks a reteaming for Morgan and Diesel, who have worked on all of the Fast and the Furiousmovies together. Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that it was Diesel who came up with the idea to revive Miami Viceand made a personal appeal to NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke. The effort marks Diesel’s largest scripted TV project so far.
