"Cash Cab" on Discovery Channel has delighted, stumped and cut up audiences with its innovative format and hilarious host, comedian and licensed New York City cab driver Ben Bailey. There are over 13,000 cabs in New York City, but there's only one that pays you. Would-be passengers on the street become contestants on center stage when Bailey drives up in the "Cash Cab." Sure Ben can take you where you're going, but players need to answer questions along the way to get there and win money.

The Emmy winning series returns in 2017, with a new spin, as unsuspecting passengers will be ambushed by America's favorite celebrities! Revived and revved up, unwitting passengers enter the Cash Cab expecting a normal taxi journey, only to discover they're instant contestants in for a potentially lucrative ride. Dodging New York City traffic, these lucky passengers will take on classic trivia en route to their destination. If they get stumped, pedestrians and friends can help them out via phone, text or social media shout outs. If these riders get three questions wrong, though, they're out on the street. Episodes will feature some of the top names in comedy, film and TV ... who will even get behind the wheel of the cab itself, picking up lucky passengers.

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