Shaquille O'Neal to Star in Scripted Comedy

Shaq Inc. will focus on NBA great's business empire.

Published January 23, 2015

There's no doubting the business empire that Shaquille O'Neal has built for himself.

With endorsements and jobs galore, Shaq can now tack something else onto his growing list of ventures — his own television show. The NBA great will star in a TruTV semi-autobiographical comedy called Shaq Inc., based on his business empire, the Hollywood Reporter has learned. The half-hour comedy will follow O'Neal and the creative team running his business empire.

Shaq counts endorsements with Buick, Icy Hot, Gold Bond and Monster Products. He even has his own soda. O'Neal is also an analyst alongside Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson on "NBA on TNT."

There's no word yet on when TruTv plans to air Shaq Inc.
