Shaquille O'Neal is getting a new show. The basketball legend will star in truTV's "Upload with Shaquille O'Neal" (a working title), a new 10-episode series in the vein of "Tosh.0."

Each episode, Shaq, Godfrey and Gary Owen -- the host of series -- welcome a special guest as they scour the internet for the funniest online videos. The panel will comment on the videos, create their own, pull pranks and parody pop culture events.

“I’ve been a fan of truTV for a long time and I look forward to working with my good friends Gary Owen and Godfrey. I’ve always tried to entertain people and I know this show will deliver big laughs,” Shaq said in a statement.

"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," Marc Juris, executive vice president and chief operating officer of truTV, said in a statement. "We're really excited to be working with Shaq and the outstanding production team. This show is going to be a great fit with truTV's comedic shows like 'Impractical Jokers' and the upcoming 'Killer Karaoke.'"
