He also live a complicated life, including an ex-wife (Shawnee Smith) and 13-year-old obsessive compulsive daughter. FX has ordered 10 initial episodes, and as long as those episodes reach a certain ratings mark, Sheen's series will be greenlit for an unprecedented 90 additional episodes.

During the winter Television Critics Association press tour, showrunner Bruce Helford told a group of critics that, "Everyone in the world calls to say they want to do [this] show."
