Charlie Sheen has another reason to be “winning”. His F/X show “Anger Management” is set to be picked up for another 90 episodes! Have you seen the show yet? We have — and it’s great!
According to the latest reports, the show has been continuously gaining positive audience numbers and is poised to be picked up for 90 more episodes. The show has already averaged 3.4 million viewers each weeks.
For those who have yet to watch the show, it is loosely based on the 2003 movie of the same name which stars Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson. Charlie plays an anger management therapist who has his own issues with aggressive behavior.
Charlie’s real life father Martin Sheen is gearing up for a role on the show. He will be playing — surprise — Charlie’s father on the small screen, as well. Reportedly, his character is a recurring role on the show.
“The Hollywood Reporter” has more:
Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer told analysts during a conference call that he anticipated the trigger for a 90-episode order to come from the cable network soon.
“You can assume a significantly larger amount of episodes to air over a period of time,” he said.
Kevin Beggs, president of the Lionsgate Television Group, said the plan was to provide about 40 episodes a year to FX, with the U.S. channel to air them as it chooses.
“Our writers are working in anticipation that it goes forward and starts shooting in September, and we should be able to furnish new episodes … in January 2013,” he said.
