Sacha Baron Cohen's 'Secret' Showtime Series Gets Premiere Date

"Thrilled that 20 yrs after Ali G burst onto C4, Sacha Baron Cohen returns to the channel at his biting, hilarious best in Who is America?". Well, we won't have to wait long to see it for ourselves.

Announcing the programme, David Nevins, president and chief executive of Showtime Networks Inc, said: "Sacha is a comedic genius who shocks you with his audacity, bravery and inventiveness".

SACHA Baron Cohen has given fans a tantalising first glimpse at what may be his most audacious project yet, premiering on Stan in only a few days' time.

'Who Is America?' is billing itself as "a quest for the truth about people, places and politics".

But hey! Now we know a bit more about it - we know it's most likely going to be called Who Is America, and will be a series on United States network Showtime.

Cohen's latest teaser for his upcoming series features one of the most controversial figures from the George W. Bush administration: The pro-torture vice president who famously shot a guy while hunting birds, Dick Cheney.

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

And yesterday, Cohen dropped the big teaser, confirming he had been secretly filming undercover for the last year.leading to a clip of Dick Cheney himself signing a waterboarding kit.

On Monday, it was revealed that the show will be airing on Showtime starting July 15 and will be called Who Is America?

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 clip ends with the words, "Sacha graduates soon" before a logo for Trump University pops up on screen. Other than Trump, Baron Cohen could also be targeting other celebrities.

It also follows news from earlier this year, in which it was said that Baron Cohen was trying to get in a room with O.J. Simpson.

His award winning 2006 faux-documentary film Borat, in which he played an anti-Semitic reporter from Kazakhstan who interacts with real Americans unaware they were being set up, earned some $261 million at the global box office.
