A wealthy mystery man named Charlie runs a detective agency via a speakerphone and his personal assistant, John Bosley. His detectives are three beautiful women, who end up in a variety of difficult situations.
Stubble-faced detective Crockett lived in a sailboat guarded by his alligator Elvis. His partner Tubbs was a black New York cop looking for his brother's killer. Together they took on the Florida drug world. The show influenced men's fashions toward Italo-casual and interior decor toward the Miami look.

Tubbs, a black New York cop, enters the picture. He's in Miami for revenge. He wants his brother's killer. The look was very casual
with white pants, jackets, and pastel shirts. There was even an electric razor to give you the Miami Vice look. It was called the
