*Cable network TruTV is adding Shaq to its development slate.
Execs have ordered a pilot of “Upload With Shaquille O’Neal” (working title), from the producers of “Tosh.0” and “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” that highlights the week’s top web videos and also gives O’Neal and friends the opportunity to create their own.
TruTV has also ordered “Turbulance,” a Howie Mandel-produced game show that takes place in the sky. As contestants fly from one location to another, they must answer questions, with each correct one producing money banked for a Las Vegas getaway and every wrong one making the flight bumpier.
Another show picked up, “Jeff & Curtis Lose Weight” (working title), centers on duo Jeff Sloniker and Curtis Rainsberry as they try extreme diets, attend absurd exercise classes and humiliate themselves publicly in order to shed pounds. Rive Gauche Television is developing the project for the net.
