Hey guys, Jana here,
Shaquille O’Neal is many things, NBA all-star, actor, and a business mogul come to mind among the many other traits that comprise Shaq. He’s going to be putting his charisma to use in a new workplace comedy pilot for TruTV.
The network is looking into a new original scripted project called ‘Shaq Inq.‘, a workplace comedy loosely based on the business empire Shaq heads up. The plan is to make the show similar in tone to ‘Veep‘ and will follow the baller and the team who runs his businesses. The quirky group juggles the demands of managing not only his endorsements but existing products and implementing the eccentric business ideas Shaq comes up with.
O’Neal is not only leading the cast in the project but will executive produce it as well. Jeremy Garelick (‘The Wedding Ringer‘) has written the pilot and John Fortenberry (‘Galavant‘) is directing. This sounds like one show that will be pretty entertaining.
