In the genre of cop/civilian pairings, a show like Taxi Brooklyn had not been done before. A strong female lead with a very likable partner and a plot that expanded and thickened with every episode. The series was developed from the film, “Taxi” written by Luc Besson.What’s TB About?
Detective Caitlyn “Cat” Sullivan is a woman consumed with finding the person that killed her father. She’s always been outspoken, but her tunnelvision for solving the crime has caused conflicts with superiors on the force. Finally after a reckless driving incident, she is demoted to a cop on the beat patrol on foot. That is until Cat meets a taxi driver named Leo Romba. Hailing from Marseille, this charming French African is a skilled driver. Cat quickly realizes Leo has a big problem with immigration that could give him jail time and get him deported. She offers to help him clear it up, if he will be her driver. The show covers their relationship as their relationship evolves from a cop and a taxi driver to two trusted allies working together to solve cases. Especially solving the biggest mystery of all, the murder of Cat’s father.What’s Going Down Next Season?
The finale for season 1 went down in September 2014 leaving several plot lines unanswered including did Cat’s ex-husband really attempt to stranger his crazy girlfriend, Giada? Did Cat mistakenly kill the wrong man in an act of revenge for the murder of her father? Meanwhile, Cat’s boyfriend is meeting with the real killer of her father revealed to be Annabelle Capella. NBC then held the show in limbo prompting Executive Producer Gary Scott Thompson to state in January that they were “running out of time” which indicated NBC was letting the contracts for the cast expire. In March 2015, NBC announced they would not be renewing the series.
There are rumors the French production company TF1 ordered 14 more episodes that are currently being filmed in France, however there is nothing to substantiate these claims through either TF1 or EuropaCorp Television where NBC licensed the show from. Neither site has updated their pages for the show. As the two main characters have moved on to other shows on rival networks, it has to be assumed that that series is no longer in active production in either the USA or France.
The finale had a viewership of over 5-million, however it wasn’t enough to entice NBC to renew the series for a season 2.Cast and Characters You Should Know
