SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) - Charlie Sheen is suing Warner Bros. and the executive producer of "Two and a Half Men" for $100 million.

The lawsuit filed Thursday in a Santa Monica court alleges production was halted on the CBS sitcom to punish Sheen.

Warner Bros. Television had put the show on hiatus to allow Sheen time to seek therapy, then halted production for the season after Sheen launched tirades at executive producer Chuck Lorre. Sheen was fired from "Two and a Half Men" this week, leaving the top-rated sitcom's future in doubt.

Sheen's lawsuit alleges that Warner Bros. bowed to Lorre's desire to punish Sheen, and that the producer and Warners conspired to blame the actor for causing production to stop.

The suit also was filed on behalf of the sitcom's crew, which was put out of work.

Warner Bros. declined to comment on the suit.
