Shaq lands a TV show with the network TruTV. TruTV has given a greenlight to Upload With Shaquille O’Neal.
The series features former NBA fixture O’Neal, who joins comedians Gary Owen and Godfrey and special guests to chat up online videos, pranking others and creating their own viral vids. Cabler has ordered 10 half-hour episodes and anticipates the skein will bow early next year.
We’re really excited to be working with Shaq and the outstanding production team, said Marc Juris, TruTV exec VP.
Upload will be produced by Shaq Entertainment and FishBowl Worldwide Media, with Susan Levison spearheading the creative efforts. Mike Gibbons of “Tosh.0″ is also on board to exec produce.
