Charlie Sheen will star and serve as executive producer of the TV movie “Mad Families.”

The streaming service Crackle announced Tuesday that the former “Two and a Half Men” and “Anger Management” sitcom star, 51, would play Charlie Jones, “a loveable man-child with a heart of gold and a unique way of looking at the world” in the multigenerational comedy co-written by David Spade and director Fred Wolf.

Three families — one Hispanic, one African-American, one Caucasian — find themselves engaging in competition for the same camping space on a Fourth of July weekend.

Leah Remini, Naya Rivera, Chris Mulkey, Clint Howard, Barry Shabaka Henley and Victoria’s Secret model Chanel Iman also star. Filming began last week in Los Angeles.
