Ten episodes of the former CBS star's new sitcom have been ordered by FX, who plan to pair the series with its Two and a Half Men reruns.

Back in July, Charlie released a statement explaining his decision to jump on board with the project. "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," Sheen said. "It also provides me with real ownership in the series, a certain amount of creative control and the chance to be back in business with one of my favorite movie producers of all time, Joe Roth."
