FX Picks Up Charlie Sheen “Anger Management” Sitcom
FX has their newest series the Charlie Sheen vehicle Anger Management. Sheen announced almost immediately following his firing from Two and a Half Men that he was preparing a show based off the popular Adam Sandler movie.
The new show will begin airing in 2012 on FX and Sheen will take on the role of an Anger Management counselor, the role originally played by Jack Nicholson.
Production for the new show will be helmed by The Drew Carey Show and George Lopez producer Bruce Helford.
Speaking about the new show John Landgraf, President and General Manager of FX Networks told Access Hollywood:
“We think that Bruce Helford, Joe Roth and Charlie Sheen have come up with a wonderful, hilarious vehicle for Charlie’s acting talents — and a character we are very much looking forward to seeing him play,” and “‘Two and a Half Men’ has been an outstanding component of FX’s schedule for the past 14 months, and we have every confidence that Anger Management will soon be as well.”
FX has agreed to air 10 episodes of the comedy and if it takes off Sheen is expected to seek out a syndication deal that would air at least 90 more episodes of Anger Management on the network.
