NBA Superstar Shaquille O'Neal Plans Reality TV Weight Loss Show



Shaquille O'Neal is to further his fight against childhood obesity with a six-episode reality TV show to be screened by Disney-owned ABC this summer.

When Shaquille O'Neal does something, he always does it in the biggest way possible. And in case of showing his deep concern toward overweight kids, the NBA superstar will be taking a shot at a TV reality show focused on childhood obesity and health.

The as-yet untitled six-episode series, to be screened by Disney-owned ABC this summer, will feature the Miami Heat star and his effort to help Florida schoolchildren lose weight. Being filmed in Broward County, Fla., the series will furthermore track the lives of the children involved. O'Neal will be on hand as booster and, in episodes yet to be shot, will lobby politicians on causes including school nutrition.

The show is an adaptation of the British series "Ian Wright's Unfit Kids," which featured the former soccer star who also worked with overweight kids. No airdates have been set. Stay tuned for we'll keep you with more.
