Chyler Leigh’s New Show, Taxi Brooklyn, Premieres Tonight on NBC

You already turned out in record numbers for Eric Dane's new TV show, and now it's time to support his former Grey's Anatomy love interest!

Chyler Leigh stars in Taxi Brooklyn — which premieres tonight, June 25, at 10 p.m. ET on NBC — and her character is totally unlike Lexie. (Check out that pixie cut, for starters!)

Here's how NBC describes the premiere episode:

Hardass Detective Caitlyn "Cat" Sullivan (Chyler Leigh), a woman hell-bent on finding her father's killer, is demoted to foot patrol for reckless driving, disobeying orders, and personality conflicts. Cat arrests Marseille-born taxi driver Leo Romba (Jacky Ido), a highly skilled driver with a past. Accused of being a wheelman in a bank robbery, Leo begs Cat to make a deal: In exchange for proving his innocence, he will provide her with his driving skills and taxi. The unlikely partnership grows into friendship as they investigate a series of robberies, and Leo becomes Cat’s confidant in her personal investigation of her father’s murder.

Joining Chyler and Jacky in the cast are Raul Casso, James Colby, Jennifer Esposito, Bill Heck, Caterina Murino, Ally Walker and Jose Zuniga.

If the show sounds anything like the 2004 Jimmy Fallon-Queen Latifah comedy Taxi, there's a reason: Both are based on the same 1998 French film, Taxi. (And, funnily enough, both remakes star Jennifer Esposito.)

So don't forget to tune into NBC tonight at 10 p.m. ET to show this Seattle Grace alum your love. After all, it's not like she can return to Grey's

Don't miss the episode.
