Shaquille O’Neal Gets Docuseries About His Extremely Busy Lifestyle

TNT announced a brand new reality show which will follow the hectic life of NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal.

Shaquille O'Neal isn't just an NBA legend. He is a DJ, a businessman, and a restaurant owner.

And soon, he will also be the star in his own reality show, as announced by TNT.


The new TNT show, "Shaq Life," will take viewers into the basketball icon's everyday life during his summer break as he sets off on an international tour as a DJ, and does several shows in Las Vegas.

The audience will also follow Shaq as he films commercials and a movie, hangs out with his children, and runs his restaurant, Big Chicken 

Shaq has also become active in spreading information about cardiac diseases throughout the African American community.


Even though O'Neal has participated in several TNT projects before, namely "Inside The NBA," this new project is a challenge.

“Over the years, I’ve had many endeavors outside of sports but never this many all at once. I’m ready to bring viewers along for the wild ride that is my life,” O'Neal said.


All these activities and projects don't mean O'Neal has forgotten his first love, basketball. He recently commented on the New York Knicks losing a chance at the No.1 draft pick in the NBA Draft lottery.

“I’m so happy that the Knicks didn’t get the first pick. I’m here the next day, Knick fans are so pissed and I’m loving it. Now it creates more stories. Does Anthony Davis stay? Do they lose him to trade to get better pieces to put around Zion? Will they trade the first pick?” O'Neal commented.


O'Neal will be hard put to juggle his numerous commitments, from brand representation to making commercials, photo shoots and movies, as well as the reality show.

But in the middle of it all, O'Neal is first and foremost a family man, devoted to his 5 children.

Since his son Shareef O'Neal was diagnosed with a potentially life-threatening heart condition, Shaq has also become active in spreading information about cardiac diseases throughout the African American community.


Shaquille O'Neal made millions playing basketball, but he refused to stop working when he retired from sports.

O'Neal has parlayed his fame as a basketball icon into even more millions in endorsement deals.

O'Neal will be joining Papa John's Pizza's board of directors - the fourth largest pizza delivery restaurant chain in the US - and will become the brand's permanent brand ambassador.

The Papa John deal alone will garner O'Neal a cool $8 million, minimum, and Forbes reported that the company's stocks rose 6% after the NBA icon's partnership with the company was announced.
