Show Summary

Stringer is a comedy TV series from Down Under about the misadventures of a retired British journalist and a local cab driver. Frank Buchanan (Derrick O'Connor) moves to Australia after working fifteen years as a London reporter. He wants to enjoy a quiet retirement, but he soon meets Yanni (Nicholas Papademetriou), a playboy cab driver, who won't leave him alone. Frank tries to stay away from Yanni, but the reporter always needs to come to the cabbie's rescue after Yanni finds humorous trouble wherever he goes. Laura (Susan Lyons) soon comes into the picture after Frank looks for some part-time work. Frank trained Laura in London, and now she is making the calls, occasionally looking to payback her formerly abusive boss for the way he treated her in the past. Laura sends the macho Frank on jobs normally assigned to females, including reporting on a celebrity baby shower and investigating how to buy a wedding dress. Yanni's cab always seems available whenever Frank needs a ride, grouping the cabbie as the reporter's sidekick while he does his job. Things start to get complicated after Frank develops feelings for Laura.
