Charlie Sheen is officially headed back to television.
FX has picked up Anger Management, outbidding two other networks for a series that will feature Sheen as a therapist with a short temper and will be based on the 2003 movie that starred Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler.
The sitcom will premiere with 10 episodes next summer, with FX already agreeing to 90 more if ratings are strong.
"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," says John Landgraf, President and General Manager of FX Networks. "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."
This will mark the actor's first gig since he was fired by CBS for being positively insane.
