Charlie Sheen is planning his TV comeback in Anger Management, a new sitcom based on the 2003 film of the same name.

No network is attached to the series, which will be produced by Lionsgate Television and distributed by a subsidiary, Debmar-Mercury.

Lionsgate said the former Two and a Half Men star will retain a "significant ownership stake" in the show. Names of co-stars and a production start date have not been disclosed yet.

In the film, which starred Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler, a mild-mannered man is ordered to attend group anger-management sessions led by a therapist who needs therapy himself.

The show will be Sheen's first full-time TV job since he was fired from Two And A Half Men in March.

The hit CBS show had made him the highest-paid actor on television earning around 1.8 million dollars an episode, but he was axed from the show after he gave a string of controversial interviews talking about past drug use and repeatedly insulting show runner Chuck Lorre.

Getting paid to exercise your imagination will lift your spirits. By the time you finish this assignment, you may be in better condition to pursue your primary goal. A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
