Shaq docu-series coming to TV
NBA Hall-of-Famer turned touring DJ, Shaquille O’Neal aka DJ Diesel, is the centerpiece of a new TNT docu-series, Shaq Life, about O’Neal’s life after basketball.
The series, produced by The Content Group, will give fans behind-the-scenes content of the four-time NBA champion’s life after retirement, which includes Vegas DJ sets, touring, commercial and film work, various appearances, being a business owner of his Big Chicken restaurant, and his five kids.
“Over the years, I’ve had many endeavors outside of sports but never this many all at once,” O’Neal said in a statement. “I’m ready to bring viewers along for the wild ride that is my life.”
O’Neal will soon embark on his “Summer of Shaq” tour after bringing back his Fun House carnival event to Miami Music Week. He released a single with NGHTMRE and Lil Jon, “Bang,” earlier this year, and he’s set to play sets with some of bass music’s heaviest hitters after being the special guest at Lost Land 2018. He also recently signed a residency with Wynn Nightlife as DJ Diesel.
