Deadline is reporting that Bravo is rebooting the Emmy-winning game show Cash Cab. Original host Ben Bailey is set to return. The series is set to shoot this summer and premiere later this year.
Per the report, the show will once again take place in New York City. This time, however, Bravo says the stakes are higher than ever. The titular cab will also be upgraded and the questions will include more for “lovers of pop culture.”
Not familiar with Cash Cab? Check out Deadline’s break-down:
“Each episode will feature three games, and much like the original series it will all start the second the contestant enters the Cash Cab. If the passenger can answer enough questions correctly before making it to their destination, they’ll win big bucks. However, three wrong answers and they’re kicked out of the Cash Cab and back on the street. Along the way they’ll get two shout-outs – one on social media and the other via a street shout out – where the contestant can pull over and ask a stranger for help. Passengers who successfully make it to their destination can simply walk away with their money or they can play a double or nothing video bonus round, either going home incredibly happy or with nothing at all.”
The original Cash Cab, part of the global Cash Cab franchise that originated in the UK, aired on Discovery Channel from 2005 to 2012. The show was revived on December 4, 2017 with new seasons airing in 2017 an 2018.
