The project, which once counted Sopranos alum James Gandolfini among its executive producers (and who at one time was once loosely attached to star, Deadline notes), centers on a misanthropic and politically incorrect NYC cab driver.

Tad Quill (Scrubs, Bent) will pen the pilot and serve as an EP alongside Nancy Sanders, Mark Armstrong, Dennis Erdman and Clark Peterson and the pair of French rights holders.

    “The Pair of French right holders”?!? They made a hit show good enough to be acquired by an American network, and they don’t deserve to have their names mentioned. But a bunch of unknowns who will probably screw it up absolutely do. Nice. And by the way, they’re not French, they’re Canadians from Quebec.

    French Canadian or Québécois, not French. There’s a big difference. It’s like equating Americans to Brits!
