Shaquille O'Neal, former NBA great and current TNT basketball analyst, will be the star of a new truTV show tentatively titled "Upload with Shaquille O'Neal," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Joined by Gary Owen and Godfrey, the program will present funny online videos in a format along the lines of “Tosh.0,” with the show providing commentary and video parodies.

According to truTV EVP and COO Marc Juris: "Shaquille O'Neal has such a great personality, and he really has a lot of fun with the format and the material in this new truTV series.
