Actor Charlie Sheen has signed to star on the TV show 'Anger Management' after he was fired from CBS show 'Two and a Half Men'. Although he has taken a big pay cut for the new sitcom, the highly paid TV star is hoping an innovative payday. Sources claim that Sheen could make hundreds of millions on the new show.
According to sources, Charlie Sheen may apparently not get huge amount on 'Anger Management' as he was getting from 'Two and a Half Men'. But the actor has signed a unique deal with TV syndicator Debmar-Mercury and the deal includes an unusually large share of ownership, which could get him many millions of dollars in compensation.
The Hollywood Reporter claims that Charlie Sheen has taken a cut of more than 20 percent in his pay. He does not need to renegotiate for a higher profit participation in success or failure. Debmar-Mercury will produce six to 12 episodes with Sheen for a test run on a cable network. If those airings meet a certain ratings threshold, 90 more episodes would quickly be ordered and produced.
Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Marcus said, "Charlie only gets the big money if the show is a big success. Incentivizing Charlie makes him a great partner for both the network and us."
