James Gandolfini may find himself at the wheel of his first TV series since ‘The Sopranos.’
HBO said Gandolfini is an executive producer of ‘Taxi 22,’ a project early in development that could serve as a starring vehicle for the actor, best known as New Jersey mob boss Tony Soprano.
‘Taxi 22′ is described as a half-hour comedy centering on a politically incorrect New York City cab driver who is struggling to keep his life together. It is based on the popular Canadian TV series ‘Taxi 0-22.’
Gandolfini, 48, starred in the highly acclaimed ‘The Sopranos’ for six seasons. That drama series ended in 2007.
