After being fired from his role in Two and a Half Men, actor Charlie Sheen is all set to hit the television again with his new sitcom, Anger Management.
To be aired on FX Network, the sitcom is based on the 2003 movie of the same name starring Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson. The show revolves around an anger management therapist played by Sheen who utilizes unconventional methods to treat his patients, causing chaos and confusion in their lives.
According to reports, FX initially planned for 10 episodes for next summer. Based on the success level, they will pick 90 more and begin airing broadcast syndication by the fall of 2014.
NYDaily News.com reported that broadcast syndication could require some editing, since FX shows are often more graphic than broadcast standards permit and Sheen himself is a big fan of envelope-pushing.
The FX sitcom is regarded as a fresh effort by Sheen to salvage his turbulent career following his release from the CBS show, Two and a Half Men. The main cause for this was his public dispute with the executives of the channel and his famous lashing out at show creator Chuck Lorre.
Later, Sheen was replaced by Ashton Kutcher who also seems to be in the midst of his one-night controversy recently.
Reuters reported that Sheen ranted against his old employers and posted videos on the Web in which he bragged about his winning ways and the tiger blood he had running through in his veins.
FX has mentioned that Sheen will have a significant ownership stake in the new series.
