Charlie Sheen lands new sitcom

The actor, who made headlines this spring for his drug-fueled antics, incoherent rants and subsequent firing from CBS’ top comedy Two and Half Men, also “will retain a significant ownership stake in the series. Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury will distribute the new series. Charlie Sheen is developing a pilot for the small screen: Anger Management, a sitcom based on the 2003 movie starring Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler.”I chose Anger Management because, while it might be a big stretch for me to play a guy with serious anger management issues, I think it is a great concept,” Sheen said in a statement.
