Following that Dick Cheney promo earlier today, Showtime has confirmed that comedian Sacha Baron Cohen’s top secret project is the half-hour satirical series “Who Is America?” which they ordered.
Cohen is writing and directing all seven episodes in the series which “will explore the diverse individuals, from the infamous to the unknown across the political and cultural spectrum, who populate our unique nation.”
The first episode debuts on streaming, online and On Demand this Sunday, July 15th at midnight US-ET (9pm US-PT on July 14th) and will premiere on air that night at 10pm ET/PT. The subsequent six episodes air Sundays at 10pm ET/PT.
The show is being pushed as “perhaps the most dangerous show in the history of television” with a shameless, unhinged and cold-blooded lead character which is expected to be a new character creation of Cohen.
