LOS ANGELES (AP) — Cable channel truTV is putting Shaquille O’Neal on its team with a new series.

The channel said Wednesday that it’s ordered 10 episodes of “Upload with Shaquille O’Neal,” the working title for a series with the basketball star. Actors and comics Gary Owen and Godfrey will join O’Neal on the show.

The trio, along with a weekly guest, will share funny videos they find online and create their own, truTV said. Pranks and pop culture parodies also will be part of the mix.

In a statement, O’Neal promised “Upload” will “deliver big laughs.” A debut date for the series was not announced.
