O'Neal to get his own show

March 07, 2007|From staff and wire reports

Shaquille O'Neal will be taking a shot at a TV reality show focused on childhood obesity and health.

The ABC summer series will feature the Miami Heat (and former Lakers) star and his effort to help Florida schoolchildren lose weight, ABC said.

Air dates for the six-episode series, yet to be titled, haven't been set.

Jerry Springer will replace Regis Philbin as host of the NBC summer show "America's Got Talent."

Philbin hosted the show during its premiere season last year. The New York-based star of "Live With Regis and Kelly" opted not to return because of the "heavy travel schedule" involved with the show's tapings in Los Angeles.

Marisa Coughlan will star in a series for Lifetime Television, "Side Order of Life," about a magazine photographer who re-evaluates her life after receiving "a wake-up call from the universe."

It's one of three dramas that Lifetime is planning to introduce this summer. The others are "Army Wives," with Kim Delaney and Catherine Bell, and "State of Mind," starring Lili Taylor.
