Docuseries will give insider access to larger-than-life NBA Hall of Famer

Four-time NBA champion Shaquille O’Neal wants viewers to join him on his post-NBA season summer break and get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of how this towering mogul spends his time. TNT’s “Shaq Life” is an immersive premium docuseries that offers unprecedented access to the day-to-day of what goes into the business of being Shaq.

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

Summer break for most involves some much-needed R&R … unless you’re Shaq. “Shaq Life” invites viewers to tag along with the basketball legend on his relentless quest to be the ultimate businessman and entertainer. Follow Shaq as he spends his summer on a series of DJ gigs in Las Vegas, an international DJ tour, filming commercials, shooting a film, speaking appearances, hosting the NBA Awards, running his “Big Chicken” restaurant and spending time with his five kids.

“Shaq is the ultimate example of living your biggest, best life,” said Michael Bloom, senior vice president of unscripted and specials for TBS and TNT. “ ‘Shaq Life’ will be the first time viewers will get a fly on the wall look inside his extreme ambitions and the non-stop fun he brings to everything he does.”

Shaq answers to many names – Big Aristotle, Shaq Diesel, The Big Shamrock, The Big Baryshnikov, Superman, Shaq Fu, Wilt Chamberneezy – all reflective of his fun-loving personality and unbelievable life experiences. In this series, fans will be given an entertaining look at this real-life super man, with an intimate view of his heart, sense of humor and ambition.
