Cast & Crew
Philip Michael Thomas
"Miami Vice," the highly stylized cop drama TV series, was one of the defining pop culture phenomena of the fast-living, high-rolling 1980s. It made superstars of lead actors Don Johnson and Phillip Michael Thomas and, for better or worse, helped bring its trademark pastel hued couture and techno music into the mainstream. But as the decade drew to a close, "Miami Vice" began to lose its relevance. Attempts to retool the show to reflect the changing times fell flat and NBC finally pulled the series off the air after the 1988 season.
