Following Shaquille O’Neal and Ken Jeong’s viral showdown on TBS’ rap conflict array Drop a Mic, a network has reunited a twin for a new unscripted comedy project, Unqualified (working title), that has received a commander order.
It will follow O’Neal and Jeong as they take on opposite peculiar jobs, including patrolling malls as rent-a-cops, surrogate training kindergarten, sight conducting and behaving as celebration clowns. Summoned to their proxy practice by gullible people around a digital portal, Unqualified will account a antics of O’Neal and Jeong as they try their hands during jobs that have always intrigued them, along with a few they’d rather avoid.
“These guys finished sorcery on Drop The Mic together. Their chemistry is undeniable.” pronounced Michael Bloom, SVP of unscripted and specials for TBS and TNT. “And no doubt that sorcery will extend to a oblivious people who design anything to get finished when they uncover up.”
Since a Apr debut, O’Neal and Jeong’s part of Drop a Mic has garnered 7.5 million viewers on YouTube alone. (watch it below)
“We are built to hustle,” O’Neal and Jeong said. “We’re grateful to TBS for giving us a event to welcome any plea that comes a approach and we wish to warn everybody with a ability to learn a ropes on a fly.”
O’Neal and Jeong will executive produce Unqualified alongside Dave Kneebone, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim of Abso Lutely Productions as good as Jensen Karp, Perry Rogers Colin Smeeton, Mike Perris, and Brett Carducci.
