Shaquille O'Neal and TruTV have announced that they are working on a scripted comedy show starring the former Lakers big man.

The show, which is currently titled Shaq Inq., is a workplace comedy based on O'Neal's ever widening business empire, and will be TruTV's first scripted series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The show will be the NBA analyst's second on the reality programming-based network, following Upload with Shaquille O'Neal, which features Shaq and co-hosts riffing on viral videos as well as filming their own hidden camera pranks.

Shaq has a large filmography, starring in Kazaam, and making cameo appearances in several recent Adam Sandler films.
