"Come to Miami on vacation. Leave on probation." That's how one former Miami Beach Police chief described the era of crime that washed over the party city in the 1980s. Cocaine, cops, killers, and cash lined the streets in Miami's dark past, now revisited in Investigation Discovery's new series REAL VICE: MIAMI, premiering Wednesday, March 21 at 10 PM E/P. Audiences know Miami for its beautiful people, tropical weather, and cultural crossroads, but what they'll come to learn from "REAL VICE: MIAMI" is that the city's reputation for being fast, loose and a little wild applies to local criminals as well.

They were Miami's best and worst at the same time. The infamous "River Cops" had it all — badges, honor and tons of cash — until they tried one drug rip-off too many. The story of how they were busted is the mystery thriller of 80's Miami. Three key investigators and a Miami journalist tell the tale of the biggest corruption case in Miami history.
Alex Alvarez, Jorge Plasencia and Al Singleton are the "good cops" who put Miami's most infamous "bad cops" behind bars. Mo Fitzgibbon is the journalist/filmmaker who spent years getting to know every one of the players. Now they pool their resources for REAL VICE MIAMI and tell the story of what it takes for "Miami's Best" to become Miami's worst. Vivid re-enactments illustrate the story, filmed in the actual Miami locations where the crimes took place, from Little Havana to dockside on the Miami River.
