HBO rides ‘Taxicab’ back to New York

Cabler exec Nevins lobbied the city for show's return

HBO’s “Taxicab Confessions” is coming back to New York.

Show, which bowed in 1995, was first filmed on the streets of Gotham. Three episodes — real conversations in taxicabs — were shot before “Confessions” decamped to Las Vegas, where seven more segments were produced. (Footage shot in D.C. never aired.)

HBO exec VP of original programming Sheila Nevins had long lobbied the city to allow for the show’s return. With the assistance of Katherine Oliver of the Mayor’s Office of Film, Theater and Broadcasting, permission was finally granted.

Now one year in her post as commissioner, Oliver convinced the Taxi and Limousine Commission to cooperate.

“They recognize the benefits of helping to lay the groundwork of a show like this,” said Oliver. “The show is so quintessentially New York, and a green light for yellow cabs means more jobs for production and post-production.”

Series is produced by L.A.-based brothers Joe and Harry Gantz. All elements of the show, with the exception of offline post-production, will take place in New York.

Shooting will begin in July.
