Charlie Sheen to land his own show on HDNet?
Image Credit: Michael Bezjian/WireImage.com; Jesse Grant/WireImage.comBillionaire Mark Cuban, who owns HDNet, says he has had talks with Charlie Sheen about bringing the actor’s “winning” act to his cable network. In an interview with ESPN, Cuban, who also owns the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, said, “I reached out and we’ve had some conversations, and we’re going to work on doing some things.”
It’s still unclear whether their collaboration might be a reality show or a talk show or something entirely different. “We’ll do something together, but it’s not certain it will be a show,” said Cuban. “It’ll come down to what he wants do and what his situation is. We’ll just figure it out from there, but it’s a unique opportunity, I’ll say that.”
Cuban kindly endorsed Sheen’s weekend webcast, which had been widely panned. “Everybody wants to critique a Web show that got put together in a few hours,” Cuban said. “That’s not the point. It gave him a chance to be himself and have some fun. The thing I like the most about Charlie is that he just loves to mess with the media. You guys fall hook, line and sinker.”
