Plot Synopsis

This half-hour sitcom centers on the parking garage of The Sunshine Cab Company where a group of eccentric New York City cabbies work to earn some cash while striving for something bigger. Alex Rieger is the only driver who is a cabbie by profession. Since he's seen everything before, he's the voice of reason for the group and usually provides sound advice and solves their problems. The rest of the group includes: Elaine, a single mother was is also a part-time receptionist at an art gallery; Bobby, a struggling actor who has spent three years trying to land a major gig; Tony, a boxer who has not won a bout...yet; newlywed John, a student working his way through college; immigrant Latka, the company's mechanic; Jim, a burned-out hippie-turned-cabbie. The cabbies not only contend with issues in their lives and jobs, they also deal with the tyrannical dispatcher, Louie De Palma. "Taxi" was nominated for more than 30 Emmy Awards.
