FX Buys Charlie Sheen’s Anger Management

Charlie SheenCable network FX is in the Charlie Sheen business. The network has purchased Anger Management, a sitcom loosely based on the 2003 movie of the same name from Joe Roth’s Revolution Studios.

The network has ordered 10 episodes of the show written and executive produced by veteran comedy writer Bruce Helford.

“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,” said John Landgraf, President and General Manager, FX Networks, in a statement. “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.”
