Nepotism is the model to successfully facilitate Anger Management. At least that seems to be the secret for the new FX comedy series starring Charlie Sheen. In addition to Sheen's real life siblings Renee Estevez [on the writing staff], Ramon Estevez [producing], and Emilio Estevez [guest starring], a guest starring deal with dad Martin Sheen is in the works [and may have been signed off on already]. And in a case of art imitating life Charlie's ex-wife Denise Richards recently completed a guest starring role as his fictional character's ex-wife.

In Anger Management, Sheen stars as "Charlie," a non-traditional therapist specializing in anger management. Selma Blair, Shawnee Smith, Daniela Bobadilla, Michael Arden, and Noureen DeWulf co-star. He has a successful private practice, holding sessions with his group of primary patients each week, as well as performing pro bono counseling for an inmate group at a state prison.
Prior to his career as a therapist, Charlie was a stalled minor league baseball prospect whose road to the majors was sidetracked by his own struggle with anger issues.
After a stint in anger management therapy, he made it to the majors and had one terrific season before his anger issues put him on the shelf for good. In the final game of his career, he tried to snap a bat over his leg, which resulted in a career-ending injury. That injury led him back to school and to his current profession.
Charlie thrives on the chaos in his life while still battling his own anger issues. His life is complicated by his relationships with his own therapist/best friend, an ex-wife whose positive outlook but poor choice in men frustrates Charlie, and their 13-year-old daughter who has obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Bruce Helford serves as Executive Producer/Showrunner. Joe Roth, Mark Burg, Dave Caplan are Executive Producers.
