Charlie Sheen has been talking about a return to television ever since being fired from hit television show, ‘Two and a Half Men.’
It seems like he may get his chance as sources tell TMZ that a sitcom is currently being written around Sheen that will air on a major American television network. Reports suggest that a deal could be in place before the end of next week.
After a string of arrests and stints in rehab that delayed production of ‘Two and a Half Men’, show creator Chuck Lorre finally fired Sheen after he went on a controversial rant, which offended Lorre and his production team.
During his time with the show, Sheen was the highest paid actor in television earning almost $2 Million per episode.
45-year-old Sheen sued Warner Brothers and Chuck Lorre for $100m after claiming that his firing was unfair and a breach of contract. Yesterday, a Los Angeles court rejected a request for a public trial by Sheen and his attorney. Warner Bros. told E! that they are “very gratified” by the ruling.
Ashton Kutcher was named as Sheen’s replacement in ‘Two and a Half Men’ earlier this year.
