Black Cab Sessions USA: New Orleans
British pubcaster Channel 4 has acquired The Black Cab Sessions USA, a 6 x 30-minute series that takes viewers on a musical heritage tour of six American cities and features performances by the likes of Jack White and Wanda Jackson (pictured), John Legend and The Roots.
The Black Cab Sessions format was created by content agency Just So in 2007 to air online and has since earned a reputation for supporting new musical talent, such as Mumford & Sons, Fleet Foxes and Lianne La Havas.
The American edition was coproduced by cross-platform content provider LoveLive and Just So, and takes viewers on tours of Philadelphia, Athens, New Orleans, Memphis, Nashville and New York with a black cab from London doubling as transport and music studio. Each episode features exclusive performances in the back of the cab.
