Charlie Sheen animated special coming to Spike TV; Online viral hit lands deal -- EXCLUSIVE
UPDATED: Spike TV is teaming with Taiwanese viral sensation NMA to produce Charlie Sheen’s Winningest Moments — a half-hour animated special chronicling the most outlandish moments in modern Sheen history.
The special will count down about a dozen of Sheen’s most scandalous headlines and will be hosted by two female characters dubbed “The Goddesses.” (A clip from the special is below)
Winningest Moments represents the first full-length U.S. TV program from NMA, whose company’s videos recapping the latest Hollywood scandals have become an online must-see over the past year. The outfit has previously produced news segments for Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. Sources say Spike has signed NMA to a five-year programming deal to create content for the network.
The Sheen special includes:
Scenes where Sheen wrecks a hotel room and loses a $150,000 watch; Sheen rents a mansion and fills it with porn stars who live as one big happy family; Sheen doing the drug “Charlie Sheen;” Sheen auditions his Two and a Half Men replacement.
The special airs next week — Wednesday, March 9 at 10:30 p.m. — and we’re definitely looking forward to it. Here’s a clip from it:
