From Lacey Rose at The Hollywood Reporter comes news of Shaquille O’Neal’s latest creative endeavor. It’s not a TNT sitcom; it’s not a rap album; and it’s not a feature film comedy.

Rather, Shaq has landed a ten-episode order from truTV for a Tosh.0-style clips show tentatively called Upload with Shaquille O’Neal. From Rose’s report:

“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 series,” said truTV EVP and COO Marc Juris. “This show is going to be a great fit with truTV’s comedic shows like Impractical Jokers and the upcoming Killer Karaoke.”

Brooks Barnes Gets Seacrest Scoop

Just how expansive are the powers of 35-year-old mogul Ryan Seacrest becoming? According to New York Times media reporter Brooks Barnes, the pixie king of all media’s new $60 million contract extension with Clear Channel includes provisions that will give him a level of control over who advertises on his radio shows, as well as permission to squeeze in his own “marketing partners.”
