Channel orders 10 Shaq show episodes
LOS ANGELES — Cable channel truTV is putting Shaquille O’Neal on its team with a new series.
The channel said Wednesday that it’s ordered 10 episodes of “Upload with Shaquille O’Neal,” the working title for a series with the basketball star. Actors and comics Gary Owen and Godfrey will join O’Neal on the show.
The trio, along with a weekly guest, will share funny videos they find online and create their own, truTV said. Pranks and pop culture parodies also will be part of the mix.
In a statement, O’Neal promised “Upload” will “deliver big laughs.” A debut date for the series was not announced.
Bryan apologizes for anthem cheat sheet
NEW YORK — Luke Bryan is saying sorry for his performance during Major League Baseball’s All-Star game.
The country singer checked the lyrics he had written on his hand while he sang the national anthem on Tuesday night. He also checked his watch.
In a series of tweets Wednesday, Bryan says he’s sincerely sorry if he offended anyone. He says he just wanted to make sure that he didn’t mess up and that his singing came from the heart.
He also said he checked his watch because he knew a stealth bomber was going to fly overhead, and he started a little late.
