When a celebrity who moonlights as some kind of crazy genie decides that love is in the air, he makes it his mission to help love conquer all! After a sports career and a slew of endorsements, our own "Love Shaq" pops in to uncross the stars of romance and help ordinary mortals in their quest for companionship with only his trademark style and some help from the audience. Will the characters manage to fall under his spell, or will they be forever parted never to love again? Only time and our favorite TV pitchman will tell!
