Bell Media has acquired the Canadian rights to Charlie Sheen’s new series, called Anger Management, which will begin production early next year. Sheen spoke directly to Canadians in a taped message that aired Monday night on CTV saying, “You seem like the nicest people in the world. But I know the truth. You’re holding in a lot of anger. Why else would you drink so much beer, put on shoes with sharp blades and smack each other around with wooden sticks?” Anger Management is based on the 2003 movie of the same name, which starred Jack Nicholson as an aggressive therapist. Sheen will take on the role of the therapist. In a statement released to the press, Sheen said: “I chose Anger Management because, while it might be a big stretch for me to play a guy with serious anger management issues, I think it is a great concept.” Anger Management will air on CTV in Canada and on FX in the States.
