Radaronline.com, which is hardly the most reliable source in news, said Charlie Sheen has inked a deal with production company Lionsgate Television for a new sitcom and is pitching it to networks, including Atlanta-based ‘front-runner” TBS.
A TBS spokeswoman put the kibosh on this rumor with this terse statement she emailed me just a few minutes ago: “TBS is not in discussions for a possible project with Charlie Sheen.”
Would a Sheen sitcom make any sense on a cable network? Could they even afford him? Is he such a trouble-maker that networks might shy away from him?
TMZ reports that Chuck Lorre, creator of “Two and a Half Men,” plans to kill Sheen’s character Charlie Harper off. Knowing how Lorre feels about Sheen, it won’t be pretty!
