It’s official, on Monday TMZ reported that Charlie Sheen was fired by Warner Bros. Television. A source at Warner Bros. says no decision has been made on whether Two and a Half Men will come back without Charlie Sheen. Tens of millions of dollars are on the table, and CBS/Warner Bros. Executives (and fans too) want a solution.
Everyone is asking… Can CBS spin off 2 1/2 Men without Sheen? I say yes, and here’s how they can do it!
Alan comes home from work.
Charlie is gone.
Furniture is gone.
There’s a note.
“Moved to Columbia… ”
In desperation, Alan calls his former chiropractic college buddy in (Venice Beach) Los Angeles, California.
Alan finagles a way for him and Jake move from Malibu to Venice Beach, home of weirdos and freaks, hilarity ensues.
Remember, Two and a Half Men was a series about a hedonistic jingle writer’s (Charlie) free-wheeling life coming to an abrupt halt when his chiropractor brother (Alan Harper) and 10-year-old nephew move into his beach-front house in Malibu.
I’ll even share the opening for free… Alan comes home from another dejected day in his mediocre life to discover that the locks on Charlie’s house have been changed. There’s a note from Charlie that reads “Dear Alan, House and furniture sold, have moved to Columbia.”
Alan is suddenly homeless! Being the scheming cheap ass that he is, he has the bright idea to make a collect call to his old chiropractic college roommate, former Hollywood rock and roller, and successful Los Angeles chiropractor, Michael Dorausch.
Dorausch just happens to live in a beach-front home in Venice Beach, a short drive away from Charlies place in Malibu. Venice California, the city of weirdos and freaks (Lindsey Lohan lives here), welcomes it’s newest resident.
