Looks like Charlie Sheen is “winning” again!

The actor is starring in a new sitcom called Anger Management and RadarOnline.com has learned the show has found a home with FX Network.

According to Deadline.com, Sheen’s new show is guaranteed 10 episodes to run in 2012, and if all goes well, they will then pick up 90 more.

Interestingly, FX is the same network that currently airs reruns of Charlie’s prior syndicated sitcom, Two and a Half Men.

FX beat out NBC, Fox, ABC, USA Network, A&E, Comedy Central and TV Land to win the rights to Anger Management, which is loosely based off Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson’s 2003 hit movie.

"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," Charlie said in a statement.

"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."
