We're inching close to the premiere of FX's comedy series Anger Management, with about two months to go before Charlie Sheen returns to television in a starring role. So far, FX has done its fair share to tease us on the show, while not really showing us any actual footage from the comedy. This video is more of the same in that respect, but does give us a look at the set, and a glimpse at Selma Blair.
Set to premiere June 28, Anger Management is based on the film by the same name and has Charlie Sheen playing (another) Charlie, an anger management therapist. We have more on the description for Sheen's character further down, but first, here's the latest video released by FX, which has Sheen giving us a tour of the set. This includes a stop at a bar, and then a living room, where his co-star Selma Blair appears to be waiting (and in a good mood).
It seems like everyone's in a good mood and roaring to go on set of the series. Of course, we don't get to see anything being shot, but I expect to get a better look at the show once we get a little bit closer to June. In the meantime, for those interested in knowing more about Charlie's character Charlie, here's his back-story…
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.
Anger Management premieres Thursday, June 28 at 9:00 p.m. ET on FX.
