"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 said in a statement. "It 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."
While the show has no network attached, the project has Lionsgate TV, Revolution Studios and distributor Debmar-Mercury on board.
"We always look for series ideas that are noisy, accessible and relevant," Lionsgate executive Kevin Beggs said. "Charlie Sheen in Anger Management takes those criteria to a whole new level and we are thrilled to be in business with him ... With a star of Charlie's magnitude, a producer as venerable as Joe Roth and a branded property as compelling as Anger Management, this show has unique upside while still adhering to our disciplined business model."
