Taxi Orange was an alternative to the Big Brother reality soap, and it was quite popular in Austria. It was aired by the public television channel ORF. The idea was to lock up a group of people in a closed environment, who were allowed to leave only in an orange taxi driving passengers around, so they were still able to interact with the world outside. The habitat and the taxi interior were videotaped and used to produce a 30-minute daily summary, which was presented to the viewers. Each week, viewers elected a winner who had to decide on the exclusion of one colleague. The winner got 1 million Schilling. Two seasons were produced.

Taxicab Confessions is a television series of hidden camera documentaries that have aired on HBO since January 1995. In segments taped in New York City and Las Vegas, the taxi drivers are also producers who steer both the vehicle and the conversations with passengers. When passengers enter the cab, they are recorded with several small cameras hidden in the taxi. The producer prompts passengers into discussing their past and/or present circumstances. This has led some participants to reflect on their life, recalling extreme tragedies or triumphs. Much is verbally or visually graphic, including explicit sex talk and sex acts performed in the back seat. At the end of the taxi ride, passengers are asked to sign waivers allowing the hidden camera footage to be used on the program, and footage of this revelation is sometimes seen during the closing credits. Separating the segments are short video montages showing life in the city, incorporating quick cuts of club interiors, flashing neon signage, strippers and the homeless, along with the series theme music, "Over the Rainbow" by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes. The series originated in New York, moved to Las Vegas and in recent years returned to New York.
