Sacha Baron Cohen returning to TV with 'Who Is America?'

Sacha Baron Cohen arrives at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party

The more we find out about Sacha Baron Cohen's new secret project, the more people are getting excited ... and maybe a little creeped out.

Sacha Baron Cohen is making a new TV series called Who Is America? "He is the premier provocateur of our time, but not for the sake of 'gotcha" moments.

Baron Cohen's new series will be titled Who is America? according to Vulture, whose editors noticed posters for the upcoming series in NY.

After teasing fans on social media, Sacha Baron Cohen has finally revealed the shenanigans he has been up to over the past year.

Written and directed by Baron Cohen, the seven episodes series will begin on the Showtime cable channel in the States from this Sunday, before screening on Mondays in the UK.

The Croats will play France for the title on Sunday in its biggest sporting moment since becoming an independent nation in 1991. Harry Kane & Co. will deal with the same disappointment that felled Shearer and Platt, Gazza and Wazza, Beckham and Gerrard.

Viewers can then hear Cohen asking the torture-loving former vice president, "Dick Cheney, is it possible to sign my waterboard kit?" Details on Who is America? arrived just days after Cohen posted a video from a few years back of Donald Trump criticizing his comedy skills and telling him to go to school to learn to be amusing.

Speaking of which, Cohen's recent 4th of July tweet, which included footage and audio of Trump insulting him, appears to suggest the comedian is relishing the chance to re-ignite his spat with the now American President.

Who is America? premieres on Showtime on July 15, 2018.

The 22-second video came just days after Baron Cohen released a video saying he's "back as you've never seen him before", with at the time, just talks of a new comedy interview series with Showtime being in the works.

Showtime said Who is America? Baron Cohen is expected to go after President Donald Trump in a bold, satirical way. The brief video ends with Cohen having Cheney sign a "waterboard kit". His next project was 2006's Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, a feature film.
