"Sacha Baron Cohen Stars in 'Who Is America?" for Showtime

Sacha Baron Cohen’s Newest Character Has Arrived, and He’s Here to Mock America It Looks Like Sacha Baron Cohen’s Mystery Trump Project Is Actually A New Showtime Series

Showtime has described Who Is America? as "perhaps the most unsafe show in the history of television", with Sacha's new character being the most "shameless", "unhinged", and "cold-blooded" character he's ever created.

In a teaser trailer, former United States defense secretary Dick Cheney is pictured signing what is described as a water-boarding kit, and saying, "I hope you'll tune in next week for an interview with me".

Sacha Baron Cohen's new show Who Is America? will begin next week.

President and CEO of Showtime David Nevins said that behind the elaborate setup of the show, there is a genuine search to find the truth about people, places, and politics. He is the premier provocateur of our time.

The details of Sacha Baron Cohen's mysterious comedy show Who Is America? may have only been revealed earlier today but it's already heading overseas.

We've already written about Sacha Baron Cohen's latest project, although not much was known about it just a mere four days ago - all we had was a cryptic teaser.

Cohen tweeted out another tease on Sunday in which he appears to be interviewing former Vice President Dick Cheney.

Last week, Baron Cohen turned heads with a Fourth of July Twitter post that teased a new satirical project that possibly targeted his longtime foe, Donald Trump.

The show, which premieres on Showtime on Sunday, marks his first full series for TV since Da Ali G Show in 2004.

Cohen had previously posted a tweet on July 4 featuring Donald Trump ripping into him, calling him a "third-rate character" and telling him to "go to school, learn about being amusing".

The series is also expected to include some Trump-bashing, after Cohen shared this video of a special "message" from the US President... "That's a first - that's the first time I ever signed a waterboard". That promo had the tagline, "Sacha graduates soon", followed by an image of the Trump University logo. That series and the two movies that spun off from it - Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan and Bruno - elevated Baron Cohen to comedy stardom in the US.
