(LOS ANGELES) — Charlie Sheen’s TV career has come back from the dead.
In a 15-second teaser for his new FX comedy Anger Management, Sheen is seen lying inside a coffin, with his eyes closed. With funeral music playing in the background, a voice-over says, “Charlie Sheen died…and went to FX.” Sheen pops open his eyes, makes a goofy face, and waves to the camera.
The teaser is an obvious spoof the killing off of Sheen’s “Two and a Half Men” character in the first episode of its current season, due to his summer firing.
Anger Management, premiering June 28, is an adaptation of the Adam Sandler-Jack Nicholson comedy of the same name. According to TVLine.com, Sheen’s ex-wife, Denise Richards, will guest star in an episode as a business partner of his onscreen ex.
Sheen and Richards previously worked together on Two and a Half Men and Spin City.
