Pilot Scoop: Don Johnson Returns to NBC In Mann's World

Sonny Crockett is trading his Italian sport coat and linen slacks for a hairbrush and curling iron.

Don Johnson is returning to NBC for the first time since his Miami Vice days as the star of A Mann’s World, a drama pilot set in a Beverly Hills spa.

Produced by Sex and the City‘s Michael Patrick King, the project finds Johnson playing Allan Mann, a celebrated (and straight) hairdresser in his 50s who is struggling to stay young and relevant in a business fixated on youth. Successful and rich, Allan has no interest in following society’s traditional timeline for retirement. Instead, he decides to expand his beauty empire by purchasing the building next door to his salon to transform into a day spa.

The cast also includes ex-Vampire Diaries hunk Taylor Kinney as the spa’s “it” stylist.
