As a part of its upfront presentation, TruTV announced a new TV show starring Shaquille O´Neal, by ordering a pilot for it, with the working title of Upload.
Following the premises of long running America´s Funniest Home Videos and Animal Planet´s Funniest Videos, and joining the vital video madness started with Comedy Central´s Tosh.0 and MTV´s Ridiculousness, now it´s time for the Big Diesel to join the vibe and launch his new own TV show about funny videos and viral stuff.
The origin of it can be traced to “Shaq-tin a Fool” the segment Shaq has on TNT where he nominates the five dumbest plays of the week, (most time starring JaVale McGee).
This new series from the producers of Tosh.0 and America’s Funniest Home Videos. Basketball superstar and TNT NBA analyst Shaquille O’Neal and friends will round up the week’s online video clips, as well as create their own viral videos and comment on and parody current pop culture stories. This pilot comes to truTV from Fishbowl Worldwide Media founded by entertainment industry veterans Vin Di Bona and Bruce Gersh, with the creative team led by Susan Levison. Di Bona, Gersh, Levison and Beth Greenwald serve as executive producers, along with Tosh.0’s Mike Gibbons.
