Shaq just got a new gig.
Cable channel truTV recently announced that the NBA player-turned-analyst will host host a new reality show. The show is tentatively titled “Upload with Shaquille O’Neal.”
“Our creative team, headed by Susan Levison, developed a unique show that showcases Shaquille’s sense of humor, and his ability to identify the most outrageous videos online,” said Bruce Gersh, CEO of FishBowl Worldwide Media. Fishbowl Media is the company behind the show.
Comedians Gary Owen of “Think Like a Man” and Godfrey of “The Mr. Men Show” will join Shaq as he scours the internet looking for the funniest online videos to comment on. The crew will also create their own viral videos, pull pranks and parody current pop culture stories.
The show will be along the lines of Vh1’s “Tosh.0” and MTV’s “Ridiculousness” and is scheduled to run for 10 episode season.
“I’ve been a fan of truTV for a long time and I look forward to working with my good friends Gary Owen and Godfrey. I’ve always tried to entertain people and I know this show will deliver big laughs,” Shaq said.
The show is expected to air toward the end of the year.
