Charlie Sheen Returning To TV In New Sitcom

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Charlie Sheen is coming back to TV in a new sitcom.

The FX channel says it has acquired the series “Anger Management,” based on the 2003 Adam Sandler-Jack Nicholson movie. The show will air in summer 2012.

Sheen was fired last March from CBS’ “Two and a Half Men” after publicly clashing with the show’s producers, and Ashton Kutcher replaced him.

FX announced Thursday it has ordered 10 episodes of “Anger Management” and production will begin in early 2012. Writer-producer Bruce Helford will be in charge. He’s a TV veteran whose credits include “The Drew Carey Show.”

FX says Sheen will have a “significant ownership stake” in the series. He’ll play a therapist in need of counseling.

    Can’t wait to see Charlie on this one!!

  • Ron

    It was very wise to have him take a significant ownership stake in the show. That way when it BOMBS or Charlie has another DRUG induced ERUPTION, the money men take less of a hit !!!
