Shaq O’Neal has a new thing going on.
The recently retired basketball player and PHD is partnering with a few of his comic friends to launch a new show tentatively called “Upload with Shaquille O’Neal.”
Shaq and friends, including Gary Owen and Godfrey, will comment on web videos and create their own parodies. The series has been green-lighted for 10 episodes on TruTV.
“Shaquille O’Neal has such a great personality, and he really has a lot of fun with the format and the material in this new truTV series,” said TruTV EVP and COO Marc Juris. “This show is going to be a great fit with TruTV’s comedic shows like Impractical Jokers and the upcoming Killer Karaoke.”
The show is going to be right up Shaq’s alley, being that he’s a big goofball himself and a veteran to television. Remember his show, “Shaq’s Big Challenge” and “Shaq Vs.?” Yeah, it’s going to be pretty entertaining.
“I’ve always tried to entertain people,” added O’Neal, “and I know this show will deliver big laughs.”
