TMG wins Sheen’s ‘Anger’

Company nabs German-lingo rights to sitcom

BERLIN — Tele Muenchen Group has picked up German-speaking rights to the new Charlie Sheen sitcom “Anger Management” from Lionsgate Intl.

“Anger Management” marks Sheen’s first return to television since his departure from CBS’ “Two and a Half Men” more than a year ago.

The series centers on Sheen’s character, Charlie, a former professional baseball player trying to cope with anger management issues.

Also starring in the show are Shawnee Smith as his ex-wife and Selma Blair as his therapist.

Lionsgate Television is producing the series, which is exec produced by Joe Roth, show runner Bruce Helford and Sheen.

“Anger Management” is loosely based on Revolution Studio’s 2003 feature of the same name that starred Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson and which grossed $178 million in global box office.

The TMG acquisition marks the show’s third major international territory sale following deals in Canada and Latin America.

The deal includes rights for Germany, Austria and German-speaking Switzerland.

“Anger Management” is set to start shooting in March and is scheduled to premiere in the U.S. on FX in June.
