Gandolfini would play a politically incorrect New York cab driver in the half-hour series. Dave Flebotte, most recently of Desperate Housewives and Sherri, is writing and co-executive producing the project.
Since The Sopranos, Gandolfini has produced the HBO documentary Alive Day Memories: Home From Iraq and starred in Tony-winning play Gods of Carnage.
