Channel gamble on Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen is signed up for new show Anger Management

The chief of the FX TV network says he still has not seen a script for Charlie Sheen's new TV comedy Anger Management, which is scheduled to debut in June.

FX's John Landgraf admitted that it was a little unusual for the US cable network.

FX almost never orders series without seeing a pilot episode, much less a script, in advance.

However it still decided to take a risk with the actor who Landgraf said had "probably the most epic meltdown in the history of television".

The network president explained he believes FX is catching Sheen at the right time, when the actor is hungry for redemption.

There is also the chance for a big payday if it all works out.
