Directed by first-time filmmaker Michael Paradies Shoob, the independent drama Driven tells the story of four L.A. cab drivers working for the Red Star cab company during the week between Christmas and New Year's Day. Darius Pelton (Tony Todd) wants to reunite with his son, who lives with his ex-wife (Lee Garlington). Dale Schneider (Daniel Roebuck) has a second job working for a bookie named Hal (Eric Pierpoint). Jason Schuyler (Whip Hubley) is haunted by his past and shares an evening with passenger Rachel (Diane DiLascio). Legrand (Chad Lowe) brings them all together with his big talk and money-making abilities. Lou Rawls appears in a cameo as the radio dispatcher, Charlie. Driven premiered at the 1996 Toronto Film Festival.
