The prime-time rehabilitation of Charlie Sheen is almost complete.

The mercurial star just got a locked-in premiere date for his new FX sitcom, "Anger Management." The show is set to start Thursday, June 28, at 9 p.m.

FX plans to air the first two of 10 episodes that night. In the following weeks, repeats will air at 9 p.m., followed by an original at 9:30.

"Anger Management" marks Sheen's return to a prime-time series, his first such effort since he was famously sacked from CBS' "Two and a Half Men" last year after weeks of lashing out at his bosses and the show.

In "Anger Management," Sheen plays Charlie, a washed-out minor-league baseball player who becomes a "nontraditional" psychotherapist.

FX is using Sheen as the anchor of a Thursday comedy block that is scheduled to include the returns of "Wilfred," with Elijah Wood, and "Louie," with Louis C.K., as well as the premiere of "Strangely Uplifting," which is to feature Russell Brand riffing before a live audience.
