'Anger Management'

7/18/2011 10:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen has finally OFFICIALLY announced what TMZ told you last week ... that he's signed on to star in a new sitcom based on the movie "Anger Management."

Charlie Sheen New Show

The powers behind the show released a statement this morning describing the premise -- "a mild-mannered, non-confrontational man is ordered to attend group anger management sessions led by a therapist who could probably use some anger management himself."

As TMZ first reported, Sheen will play the role of the therapist -- loosely based on Jack Nicholson's character in the movie "Anger Management."

In the statement, Sheen explains, "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's involvement in the series will also be more significant than in series past -- the actor adds, “[AM] 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.”

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

Roth says, “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.”

The show -- distributed by DebMar-Mercury -- has not yet been picked up by a network.

lol @ all the idiots talking trash about Charlie's talent. He's got loads of it. And it's banked several billion+ dollars for production and investments companies over the years, and as a result it put him in the position to negotiate the highest per episode pay rate of any actor on a sitcom, ever. More then once.

And listen to them sputter their hate and rant about how stupid anyone is who would back him financially, but who are the real idiots? Those who've made a fortune off of Charlie's talents, or a bunch of haters on TMZ?

You decide.

watching this show would be like watching anything or reading anything Casey Anthony might make or write - giving credence to an otherwise ridiculous figure who should just shut up and figure out what he/she did wrong and fix it
