FX sets summer schedule; Including launch of Anger Management starring Charlie Sheen

FX will be television’s comedy destination this summer with the return of two of its acclaimed original series, Louie and Wilfred, the debut of its new late-night original series Strangely Uplifting with Russell Brand, and Anger Management starring Charlie Sheen, all airing Thursday nights beginning June 28.

The series premiere of FX’s acquired comedy Anger Management starring Charlie Sheen kicks off June 28 with the first two episodes airing at 9:00 PM and 9:30 PM E/P. In the following weeks, the series will air first-run episodes Thursdays at 9:30 PM with the previous week’s episode repeated at 9:00 PM. FX has ordered 10 episodes of Anger Management from producers Debmar-Mercury and Lionsgate Television. In Anger Management, Sheen stars as “Charlie,” a non-traditional therapist specializing in anger management. Selma Blair, Shawnee Smith, Daniela Bobadilla, Michael Arden, and Noureen DeWulf co-star. He has a successful Private Practice, holding sessions with his group of primary patients each week, as well as performing pro bono counseling for an inmate group at a state prison. 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.

The complete press release is included after the jump.

Louie, the new comedy series from writer/director/star Louis C.K., premieres tonight on FX. I’ve watched the first couple episodes and it’s pretty good. C.K. is an amazing stand-up comedian, but he hasn’t been all that successful on the TV screen (although his recent guest starring role on NBC’s Parks and Recreation was terrific).

Louie blends some stand-up into the plot — ala Seinfeld — and they’re probably my favorite parts of the show to be honest.  It’s a little dark and the acting and quirky feel may take some getting used to, but overall it’s an entertaining half-hour comedy. Check it out tonight with two-back-to-back episodes — “Pilot” and “Poker Divorce” — on FX at 11:00 and 11:00 p.m.

Below the fold you’ll find 22 high-resolution images (plus the logo shown above) along with two clips.
