Some Nice Christmas Gifts to Hollywood’s Famous Folk

25 December 2011 10:44 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Beck/Smith

HollywoodNews.com: We get word from the North Pole that Santa has been considering switches and lumps of coal for certain Hollywood celebrities who’ve been very naughty this year, but he’s concerned that such gifts are a little behind the times. And as for those stars who’ve been nice, well, it’s tough for even the jolly fat man himself to top the hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of fashions, high tech gadgets, trips and other luxury items they can select for themselves at awards shows gifting suites. So, you see, Mr. Claus is frustrated. That’s why we thought we’d help him out with some hand-picked virtual gifts for the stars.

Bruce Helford On ‘Anger Management,’ Working With Charlie Sheen And His Return To TV After A 3-Year Break

30 October 2011 5:44 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

After a 3-year hiatus, The Drew Carey Show creator/showrunner Bruce Helford is making a splashy return to the business with Anger Management, the new Charlie Sheen sitcom which just sold to FX with an initial order for 10-episodes, which if successful will be followed by a 90-episode pickup. Helford will write/run the series, based on the 2003 Adam Sandler-Jack Nicholson movie about a mild-mannered man (Sandler) ordered to attend group anger-management sessions led by a volatile therapist (Nicholson). But while the movie centered on Sandler’s character, the series will be about the therapist, played by Sheen, and his life. “It’s all about Charlie’s life as a therapist who has as many or more problems than his patients,” Helford said. “He is a guy who has anger issues and wants to work on them.” Like Sheen’s previous series, Two And A Half Men, where »

Charlie Sheen Returning to TV, Anger Management Bought by FX

28 October 2011 9:25 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Charlie Sheen is set to return to TV after his new comedy series, Anger Management, was picked up by the FX cable network. The initial 10 episodes of the show - which is based loosely on the 2003 comedy film which starred Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson – will premier next summer and a further 90 could be commissioned if it proves to be a success. The 46-year-old actor, who was fired from Two And A Half Men earlier this year after insulting the cast and his boss, will play a version of Nicholson's therapist character and also has a 'significant ownership stake' in the program, MSN reported. Three cable networks are believed to have bid for the comedy, which will be produced by Joe Roth and written and produced by Bruce Helford.

Charlie Sheen's Anger Management Series to Air on FX in 2012

28 October 2011 9:14 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Charlie Sheen's Anger Management sitcom pitch has found a home at FX and will begin airing its first episodes in the summer of 2012.

Sheen and his team has spent the last several weeks pitching the show idea to various networks in hopes of landing a deal that would get the series in viewers homes by next year. Reports suggest at least three networks put in a bid, and FX's parent News Corp. came out on top.

Part of the reason for News Corp. heavily pursuing Sheen is they have already heavily invested in syndication of Two and a Half Men reruns. There is also already a relationship between News Corp. and Debmar Mercury, the Anger Management distributor.

FX is expected to air Two and a Half Men and Anger Management back-to-back for a full dose of Charlie Sheen next summer. An initial 10 episodes will be produced, and if those fare well ratings-wise, »

FX Picks Up Anger Management Sitcom Starring Charlie Sheen

27 October 2011 4:53 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Those who don't remember the 2003 comedy Anger Management starring Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson can probably count themselves lucky for erasing the over-the-top comedy from their mind, but now audiences will have to deal with a new kind of Anger Management in the form of a new sitcom on FX starring Charlie Sheen. The new comedy series is loosely based on the aforementioned 2003 comedy film of the same name, and currently has a 10-episode order for its first season which will begin airing sometime in 2012. The Drew Carey Show and George Lopez writer/producer Bruce Helford will executive produce and act as showrunner. Since the series is loosely based on the Adam Sandler film, I'm guessing it will follow Sheen's character as he works through some serious issues but with a dark comedic tone, hopefully along the lines of Louie.  More after the jump. Honestly, despite all the craziness surrounding Charlie Sheen, »

Charlie Sheen’s ‘Anger Management’ Series Sells To FX For Summer 2012 Premiere

27 October 2011 3:17 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Charlie Sheen’s new sitcom Anger Management has landed at FX with an initial order for 10 episodes for a summer 2012 launch. If successful, that will be followed by a 90-episode order by FX as well as broadcast syndication launch by distributor Debmar-Mercury in fall 2014. After a marathon of pitches to broadcast and cable networks earlier this month followed by a short window of intense negotiations, the direct-to-series project has found a home at the cable network that already carries reruns of Sheen’s previous series, Two And A Half Men, to great ratings success. 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.
