Sheen Signs TV Deal With Lionsgate

Actor Charlie Sheen ("Platoon") has signed a deal with Lionsgate Television to create a brand new series, to air on an unspecified cable network in the US.

According to reports, the arrangement is for Sheen to both create and star in a sitcom, playing a 'Charlie Harper' -type womanizing, drunken character similar to his role in "Two And a Half Men".

Sheen has promised that his show will be far 'racier' than "Two And a Half Men", in regards to sexual situations.

Lionsgate will produce 10 episodes, with an option for 90 more depending on the viewing figures, with Sheen earning more than the $2 million per-episode he received for "Two And A Half Men" as he will receive a cut of the show's gross 'winnings'...
