Taxis over Uber: Discovery has revived game show Cash Cab for a new season to air later this year:
Emmy-Award Winning Cash Cab Returns To the Streets And Discovery In 2017 With Comedian David Steinberg And Lion USA At The Helm As Executive Producers
In a city with over 13,000 taxis, there’s only one New Yorkers should keep their eyes peeled for… the CASH CAB! The Emmy® winning series will return to Discovery in 2017, with a new spin, as unsuspecting passengers will be ambushed by America’s favorite celebrities! Comedian David Steinberg (CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM, INSIDE COMEDY, SEINFELD, and MAD ABOUT YOU) comes to the project and with All3Media’s Lion USA will revamp the series as executive producers, with Robyn Todd as co-executive producer.
Revived and revved up, unwitting passengers enter the Cash Cab expecting a normal taxi journey, only to discover they’re instant contestants in for a potentially lucrative ride. Dodging New York City traffic, these lucky passengers will take on classic CASH CAB trivia en route to their destination. If they get stumped, pedestrians and friends can help them out via phone, text or social media shout outs. If these riders get three questions wrong, though, they’re out on the street. All new episodes will feature some of the top names in comedy, film and TV…who will even get behind the wheel of the cab itself, picking up lucky passengers.
All3 Media’s Lion USA returns to produce CASH CAB, following 10 successful seasons and winning 3 consecutive Emmy Awards®.
CASH CAB is produced for Discovery Channel by Lion USA and Norton Productions. For All3 Media’s USA, Tony Tackaberry and Allison Corn are executive producers. For Norton Productions, Robyn Todd is co-executive producer. For Discovery, John Slaughter is executive producer. (Discovery)
