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."
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.
