Charlie Sheen's New TV Show

7/6/2011 10:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen's new TV show will be based on the movie "Anger Management"and Charlie will be playing the Jack Nicholson character ... TMZ has learned.

Sources directly involved in the project say the man who is making it all happen is uber-producer Joe Roth, who produced and owns the screenplay to the 2003 movie, "Anger Management."

We're told Charlie's character will stray a bit from the movie role.  The plan as of now -- Charlie's character will be an ex-jock who got his master's degree in social work during the offseason.  He becomes a counselor to defendants in the criminal justice system with anger management problems.  But, of course, Charlie's character will have anger issues of his own.

We're told the deal with Lionsgate is not done, but is in the final stages of negotiations.  And we're told, there is no deal with a network to air the show -- at least not yet.

Roth has worked with Charlie on 5 projects, including "Major League," "Young Guns" and "Three Musketeers."

This actually sounds like something I'd watch! They need to secure Milo for a part in the show. He does a great job on CR!!!

Please. The movie’s not even listed on this uber-idiot’s credits. And any kind of moron that would facilitate Charlie Sheen’s return to TV is a low-life s*** just looking to cash in. Didn’t know much about him before but I have zero respect for the man.

wow. so someone with a real life and a real occupation (a real profession) wrote the script for the show? well then who is gonna be able to relate and who is gonna watch it? may as well start a sit-com about clipping your toe nails. more people are familiar with that-- not all, mind you, but many more.

Maybe he can offer up a bit part for Lindsay LOHAN. It would be better than another home-video-camera crooked webs-cam-site "endorsement". Not much on her plate right now. Except for the cocaine. Lots of cocaine.

oh, and btw....enforcing lunches, eating, restrooms and chairs and tables in public schools is also unconstitutional. we should sue the state or government to get rid of all of that, too. all students should have to be able to listen to their class instructors from outside the school yard. schools PERIOD!!! are utterly unconstitutional. go figure...
