Charlie Sheen has reportedly signed a new TV deal.

The controversial actor - who was sacked from 'Two and a Half Men' earlier this year after publically falling out with Warner Brothers Television and co-creator Chuck Lorre due to his attitude on set - is going to appear in a new show that is "a lot racier" than his former programme.

An insider told RadarOnline: "Charlie has inked a deal with Lionsgate Television to create and star in a new sitcom.

"Charlie's character will be very similar to the one he played on 'Two and a Half Men', however the show will be a lot racier."

Ashton Kutcher replaced the 45-year-old American in 'Two and a Half Men' - which stars John Cryer and Angus T. Jones - and Chuck has reportedly decided to kill off his character Charlie Harper.

According to gossip website TMZ, Charlie's onscreen brother Alan (John) and nephew Jake (Angus) will find out "Charlie Harper has bit the dust" as "TV screens turn dark for just a minute or two".
