Charlie Sheen 'Anger Management' Sitcom is Official

Charlie SheenThe improbable continued presence of Charlie Sheen in show business keeps hanging on.

Lionsgate TV announced today that the bitchin' rock star from mars will officially return to television in a new sitcom based on the 2003 Adam Sandler/Jack Nicholson comedy 'Anger Management' that followed an anger management therapist who was angrier than his mild-mannered patient.

The show will be distributed by Debmar-Mercury, and Sheen will "retain a significant ownership stake in the series," according to the press release that Deadline obtained. Because getting into business with Sheen worked so well for Chuck Lorre and Warner Bros.

"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. "It also provides me with real ownership in the series, a certain amount of creative control and the chance to be back in business with one of my favorite movie producers of all time, Joe Roth."

The series reunites Roth and Sheen, who worked together on movies like 'Major League,' 'Young Guns' and 'Three Musketeers.'

"Who better than Charlie Sheen to tackle 'Anger Management,'" Roth, who directed the original movie, said in a statement. "With Charlie's incredible talent and comedic gifts, he remains the leading man of TV sitcoms. I'm excited to collaborate with him once again."

Although no network has been named, we won't have to wait until the series goes into production to see Sheen back on television. He'll be the latest insult target in 'The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen,' which is scheduled to air Sept. 19 -- the same night 'Two and a Half Men' returns to CBS with Ashton Kutcher taking Sheen's place.

Are you surprised anyone would greenlight a new show starring Charlie Sheen?

I'm not surprised because Charlie is a very talented actor and a hilarious person. I'm not at all astounded at the fact of the new show, I don't think he's at all mad it's just he's different. Everyones different only he's not afraid to speak of it unlike you other weirdos who hide away in your basement and stare at the wall until your eyes blow off and you even be found cause you're too weird for anyone to fuckin know you! (sorry- sidetracked)

Only Charlie Sheen would think Anger and Drugs are entertainment. Of course people who watch this nutcase and think he is the berries will continue to do so. I guess they think Anger is funny.
