The series centers on Charlie Sheen's character, Charlie, an ex-baseball player who somehow winds up as an anger management counselor. Selma Blair will portray Charlie's own therapist, a role we reported last month she was a top contender for. We also reported last month that Shawnee Smith is set to play Charlie's ex-wife. The last female lead role left to be cast is Charlie's 13-year-old daughter.
Anger Management was given a 10-episode order by FX and Debmar Mercury Productions. The network has an option to order 90 additional episodes, if the initial run succeeds.
It isn't clear when Anger Management will start production.
