Coming soon to a television near you...

After numerous pitch meetings in New York and Los Angeles for his proposed new sitcom, based loosely on the Jack Nicholson-starring comedy movie, Charlie Sheen's Anger Management has been picked up by FX. 

The net has ordered 10 episodes of the Warlcok's new show, which will air in summer 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 the network 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."

The release describes the sitcom as, "an anger management therapist [Sheen], who may need more counseling than his patients, wreaks havoc on the lives of his patients through his unconventional methods."

So how do some of his soon-to-be collaborators feel about Mr. Tiger Blood?

"I have been fortunate to work with Charlie Sheen on six hit films," said Roth. "Now to have Charlie, the number one comedy star on TV, doing Anger Management, feels like a perfect fit."

We know it's so cliché now, but "winning!" seems appropriate.
