Meet Britain’s most glamorous taxi fleet, as BBC ONE announces a brand new, three part comedy-drama series revolving around the lives and loves of a group of women launching an all-female cab company.
A high profile cast
With a high profile cast led by EastEnders actress Jo Joyner and comedy star Lisa Millett, the series tells the story of an unlikely pair of Northern women who embark on a business adventure and start a cab company run by women, for women.
