What happens when a global icon meets a global pandemic? You still get the Super-Sized life of Shaq where the Big Man brings some big ideas, big projects, and big antics into his ever-growing universe. On season 2 of “Shaq Life,” we’ll prove the point that what you put out comes back tenfold and then some. Even in these unprecedented times, life goes on, bigger and better than ever!
The last year has been hard for everyone, around the world, but Shaq knows we must persevere. Finding motivation in his work, his family, his philanthropy — and even with the heart wrenching losses of his sister and his teammate Kobe, Shaq is doing whatever it takes to make the world a little better each day and leave a legacy like no other.
As the year continues to move on and he rocks out in the last year of his 40’s, Shaq’s goal is to truly live his best life. Follow along as The Artist formerly known as Kazaam fulfills some lifelong dreams, like making a table-smashing wrestling debut for AEW, hosting a huge virtual celeb-filled Super Bowl event, going above and beyond to give back to those in need, reuniting his high school basketball team, starting drama with NBA stars, and yes, even some tug of war with a lion, Shaq’s life is indeed a life lived to its fullest!
“Shaq Life” is produced by Steve Michaels, Jodi Flynn and James Macnab of The Content Group. Michael Bloom for Bongo Pictures, Perry Rogers, Colin Smeeton, and Tess Gamboa serve as executive producers. Gamboa is also showrunner.
“Claws” is a midnight-dark, wickedly funny meditation on female badness set in a South Florida nail salon. The series follows Niecy Nash-Betts’ Desna Simms, who, alongside her crew of manicurists from the Nail Artisans of Manatee County salon, rises to power in the crime world to claim her share of cash and respect. It’s the story of hardworking women trying to get by in this economy, set against the surreal, bright, gritty landscape of Florida and the luscious, absurd, extreme excesses of the crime world. In addition to Nash-Betts, “Claws” stars Carrie Preston, Judy Reyes, Karrueche Tran, Jenn Lyon, Kevin Rankin, Jason Antoon, with Harold Perrineau, and Dean Norris.
“Claws” is executive produced by Janine Sherman Barrois, Rashida Jones, Will McCormack, series creator Eliot Laurence and showrunners Sharon Lee Watson and Emily Silver. The series is produced for TNT by Jones and McCormack’s Le Train Train in association with Warner Bros. Television.
