NEW YORK (AP) — Charlie Sheen, who was fired from "Two and a Half Men" in March, aims to launch another hit sitcom — this time, on his own terms.
The tempestuous star is planning to return to series television in the aptly titled "Anger Management," based on the 2003 film of the same name.
With no network currently in place, the new series will be produced by Lionsgate Television and shopped to prospective broadcast and cable networks by Lionsgate subsidiary Debmar-Mercury, the company announced Monday.
The 45-year-old Sheen will have a "significant ownership stake" in the series, Lionsgate said.
Not only that, but, as Sheen noted in the statement, he will have "a certain amount of creative control."
