Charlie Sheen's 'Anger Management' Series Picked Up By FX

Charlie Sheen will return to television in summer 2012.

FX has announced it has acquired the series loosely based on the 2003 Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson film of the same name, about a troubled therapist who ends up disrupting his patients' lives.

The network put in an initial order of ten episodes with a possibility for an additional 90 episodes if the series is successful.

The model will allow the former 'Two and Half Men' star's show to air first on FX and then broadcast in syndication a few years down the road. Similar to what we've seen from its comedies 'Tyler Perry's House of Payne' and 'Meet the Browns'.

"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 FX president, John Landgraf.

"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 describes Sheen's role as "an anger management therapist, who may need more counseling than his patients, wreaks havoc on the lives of his patients through his unconventional methods."

You just know Charlie Sheen is hoping there will be some nudity from his television girlfriends now that the show is on cable. Production on the show is set to begin early next year.
