Based on Luc Besson's wildly popular franchise Taxi, TF1 has begun production on Taxi: Brooklyn South in New York City.
The 12-episode drama series stars Grey's Anatomy's Chyler Leigh, and Jacky Ido (Inglorious Basterds). Co-starring are Jennifer Esposito (Blue Bloods), Ally Walker (Profiler), James Colby (Body of Proof), Bill Heck (Person of Interest), Jose Zuniga, and Raul Casso. The Fast and the Furious's Gary Scott Thompson will be serving as the showrunner.
The show will focus around Caityln Sullivan (Leigh), a brilliant officer with the Brooklyn Police Station that has been deemed an outcast at the NYPF, who joins forces with Leo Romba (Ido), a happy New York taxi driver, to solve crimes and mysteries around Brooklyn.
