"Cash Cab Chicago" on Discovery Channel is the first full series spin-off for "Cash Cab." Second City alum and comedian Beth Melewski steps behind the wheel to host the brand new Windy City edition of everyone's favorite game show-on-the-go.

"Cash Cab Chicago" is unlike any other game show, as unsuspecting riders picked up on city streets become on-air contestants inside the cab/mobile set. Quizzed on immersive, general knowledge questions all the way to their destination, the questions get harder and the stakes get higher as the meter ticks away. Miss three questions and the "Cash Cab Chicago" pulls over ejecting the contestants onto the sidewalk, no matter where they are.

"Cash Cab Chicago" is produced for the Discovery Channel by Lion Television. Tony Tackaberry, Tom Cohen and Allison Corn are the executive producers for Lion Television. Kelly Lueschow is executive producer is Discovery Channel.
