Charlie Sheen’s latest television project is headed across the pond…
Comedy Central UK has acquired the exclusive British broadcast rights to the 46-year-old part-Spanish actor’s new FX series Anger Management.
The announcement comes only a week after the show’s U.S. premiere on the cable network drew 5.47 million viewers, becoming cable’s most-watched primetime scripted comedy series premiere in total viewers and the adults in the 18-49 demo.
The deal was reached with Lionsgate International, which is selling the show overseas. The company has already made deals in Canada, Latin America, Germany, Scandinavia, Benelux, Australia, New Zealand and Poland.
It’s one of two shows announced for the fall on Comedy Central UK, which already airs Sheen’s former series Two And A Half Men and fellow U.S. shows 30 Rock, South Park, The Office, Friends and The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.
