WINNING!: Charlie Sheen's Anger Management Finds a Home - Plus "Winning" Music Video

All of that tiger blood has done the Warlock good as Charlie Sheen's first TV series since his volatile departure from Two and a Half Men, Anger Management (based on the Adam Sandler film of the same name), has found a network home.
Deadline is reporting that FX has picked up the show for a summer 2012 debut. FX has done extremely well with reruns of Two and a Half Men, and if the show debuts well the intention is to go into production on 90 episodes (no doubt to create a solid syndication package).

Says Deadline, "The cable network also owns the TV rights to the 2003 Jack Nicholson-Adam Sandler movie Anger Management — about a mild-mannered man (Sandler) ordered to attend group anger-management sessions led by a volatile therapist (Nicholson) – on which the series is loosely based. Sheen plays a version of Nicholson’s character on the show, produced by Lionsgate TV and distributed by sibling Debmar-Mercury. Joe Roth, who produced the movie, is producing the series with Sheen, who retains a significant ownership stake, and The Drew Carey Show creator Bruce Helford, who serves as writer/showrunner. Production is slated to begin in early 2012. '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 FX president John Landgraf. '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.'”
