Sheen

OFFICIALLY Announces

'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.

I wouldn'*****ch it unless someone held a gun to my head...Since that is not going to happen...I'll no*****ch it. The cable channel that picks it up will be labeled lame...or desperate.

Who gives a rat's tushie? At best it'll only last until Charlie goes nuts again ... like ten minutes into the first show.

Charlie is a has been. Never to "be" again.

That's all well and good but no one pick up the show. Until that happens this is moot. Nothing from the networks or cable networks.

No one picks up a show until the pilots been filmed and shopped around. Talk about putting the cart before the horse...

None of you Sheen supporting haters will watch anything, because no network will pick up the pilot.

HATERS = SHEEN SUPPORTING TROLLS

Sheen is done, he has an angry fork in him and everything in his life. Everything he touches fails now, losing so very very badly.

This show will never even happen. Duh!

Who would watch this show? Charlie is gross and sad. And a sad exzcuse for a human being. Can you imagine being his 20-something daughter and have to say out loud that he is your dad. May Charlie stay far away from Denise Richards' new baby. He makes me ill.

Shelley, hate to break it to you but Charlie has already met the new baby, & there are beautiful photos of Charlie proudly walking his adult daughter down the aisle last year, so clearly SHE has no problem with him as her dad! Charlie is trying to stay clean for his kids, & will be working again! GOOD FOR CHARLIE!
