Taxi Brooklyn (10pm, NBC) - A new series featuring Chyler Leigh (Lexie on “Grey’s Anatomy”) as a “tough lady detective” who joins forces with a “streetwise New York cabbie” ( Jacky Ido) to solve crimes while also investigating her father’s murder. Leigh is almost unrecognizable in her sassy new short ‘do, and unfortunately, not given much else to work with in her clichéd “tough lady detective” part. Ido, a French actor best known for his part in “Inglorious Basterds,” is the most interesting thing about the pilot, which is heavy on chase scenes of the car and foot varieties.
