Charlie Sheen's new sitcom, Anger Management, has been bought by FX.
The show, loosely based on the 2003 film starring Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler, will star the controversial actor.
Production will begin early next year, with the show set to premiere in summer 2012.
Sheen was fired earlier this year from his lead role on Two And A Half Men. At the time, he was the highest paid actor on television.
Charlie has said that this show will be edgier than Men, which makes it seem like a fit for FX. The network has a history with provocative shows including Nip/Tuck, Sons of Anarchy and American Horror Story.
The show has an initial order for 10 episodes, followed by a 90-episode order for broadcast syndication launch in fall 2014.
