Charlie Sheen

Negotiating For New Sitcom

6/13/2011 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources connected with Charlie Sheen tell TMZ ... the actor is negotiating a "big offer" for a new TV series that could debut as early as January, 2012.

We're told Charlie's reps are in "deep negotiations" and the deal could be done by week's end.

Our sources say the sitcom is being written specifically around Charlie and will air on a broadcast network. The deal does not call for a pilot. The show would go straight to series.

Our sources would not reveal details about the sitcom, except to say Chuck Lorre is NOT involved.

"I used to be a HUGE fan...but now I can't even watch reruns of his shows!!!! Wayyyyyy too much baggage to forgot when watching him!! He needs to find a new career and a new dentist!!!"

Truth Truth

Good for Charlie! At least he is honest about who he is and he does not go around lying and cheating like our so many of our US Congressman do. MaSheen is the real deal and you can't beat his honesty!

That is a show I'll never watch. In my book, he crossed a lot of lines, calling anyone who didn't worship is crack-using butt, a troll. I hope the advertisers understand that a lot of people feel like me and won't be seeing any of the products advertised on any of his shows.

Wow they would basically be exploiting a mentally ill person for money. Charlie Sheen is not mentally stable to be on TV again. It would be the worst kind of voyeurism

Why are they calling Intervention a "new" show?

I guess it won't be about a dental office.

Gotta love Charlie. If he gets this deal he will come out strong. He looks bad right now due to self abuse however that can be quickly changed. His handsome features are still there.I would love to see him in a new sit-com. Two and half Men was based on his life...Who is Ashton gonna be Charlie's Mom's "BOY TOY"?

The network is brave it could just end up being a replay of the CBS debacle. Unless he gets clean and sober and stays that way I wouldn't insure him I don't know if any company would be stupid enough to. He tweets about going out for drinks etc. so I know he isn't sober.

Charlie is hilarious when he's himself in a role. I can't wait to see what network it will go too.

Hahahaha yea right.....if Charlie "crackhead" Sheen's reps are in deep negotiations for a sitcom that will go straight to series I willing to bet they are in deep negotiations with EACH OTHER and Charlie and are funding it with Charlie's money and the money he made off of his asinine tours. lol.

Who in their right mind would take a chance on this drug addict who refuses to seek REAL treatment for his drug issues and think he knows it all....NO ONE.

Wait, wasn't he bragging about a series HBO had for him which included a huge payday......what happen to that?

This douche-bag thinks anyone cares about him in another tv series? If ANY of what blather falls out of Sheen's mouth, is true, CBS needs to get this squelched ASAP! If his old contract with CBS stipulates he gets to collect a paycheck if TAHM continues w/o him that is double indemnity and one needs to void the other. He shouldn't be able to collect 1.2M from CBS and then get $5M for another show. Again if any of the blather from this idiot is true, CBS has more claims to work getting completely out from underneath this barnacle that is Charlie Sheen altogether and make him someone else's problem!

Hey, if 2.5 is successful and Sheen's is too, we'll have two good shows to watch instead of the political fat-chewing. I gotta say it; Charlie Sheen had a show built around him and Lorre realized a real talented cast could boost Charlie. Lorre's great writing made Charlie shine but too, so did his cast members.

SLYV1212, thanks for the heads up re the MSNBC article (below). The article pretty much sums it up, IMO.

http://scoop.today.com/_news/2011/06/14/6855952-networks-not-ready-to-work-with-loose-cannon-sheen-just-yet

However, if this story really is true, we will hear all about the details soon enough.

The initial "sources" that TMZ mentions are "connected to Charlie". Not clear if these are the same sources that they also later refer to as "our sources". If they are the same sources - all "connected to Charlie" - then it seems that this story is most likely just more Charlie PR from Charlie's camp. Making up news is a sure sign of desperation - and wouldn't nearly be the first time that Charlie has resorted to such a tactic.
