The show is going to be right up Shaq’s alley, being that he’s a big goofball himself and a veteran to television. Remember his show, “Shaq’s Big Challenge” and “Shaq Vs.?” Yeah, it’s going to be pretty entertaining.
“I’ve always tried to entertain people,” added O’Neal, “and I know this show will deliver big laughs.”
*Marlon Wayans might be coming back to the small screen real soon.
According to Deadline.com, the actor wrote, will executive produce, and star in a new comedy series, which is still in the making at ABC Studios.
It’s been 16 years since Wayans co-created and co-starred in the long running WB comedy series, “The Wayans Bros.”
The new show will follow a similar theme.
The comedy, which has an odd couple/buddy cop comedy feel to it, centers on two brothers, both cops. Having fallen down on his luck, one of them moves in with his brother and his family. Wayans will play the married brother.
Stay tuned as more develops.
