Chicago 'Cash Cab' in the Works



    Celebrate This Holiday Season in Lively St. Charles

    Next time you take a cab in the windy city, the driver may be paying you cash for trivia answers.

    The Discovery Channel is bringing the original New York-based television show Cash Cab to Chicago, according to TimeOut Chicago

    The show was a gift to more than 13,000 fans on a Facebook page called "Bring Cash Cab to Chicago!"

    Cash Cab is a game show filmed inside a taxi cab where the driver asks the customer trivia questions. If the customer answers correctly, they win big bucks. If not, they get kicked out of the cab 

    TimeOut Chicago says Second City cast member Beth Melewski will be behind the wheel, playing the role of driver and host.
