Sacha Baron Cohen Gets Dick Cheney to Sign a ‘Waterboarding Kit’

Sacha Baron Cohen Gets Dick Cheney to Sign a ‘Waterboarding Kit’

Who Is America? is reportedly set to premiere in the U.S. later this month. The pay cabler announced Monday that the comic's new television series "Who Is America?" will premiere at midnight Eastern time July 15.

Per Showtime, the series - which has been in-the-works for a year - will "explore the diverse individuals, from the infamous to the unknown across the political and cultural spectrum, who populate our unique nation".

Showtime has described Cohen's character in Who Is America? as "shameless", "unhinged", and "cold-blooded", and that the program is "perhaps the most risky show in the history of television". "You've been warned" the posters tease, while giving us the first glance of Cohen's character - a guy suspiciously peeking out of windows with various eyewear.

That 37-second video was also released on Twitter, and it portrayed as a Fourth of July message from the president that featured previous footage of Trump criticizing Baron Cohen.

It's official: Sacha Baron Cohen is returning to TV - and a lot sooner than you might think. Behind the elaborate setup is a genuine quest for the truth about people, places and politics.

How did Cohen get Cheney to appear on camera signing a waterboard kit?

"Imagine if Sacha Baron Cohen had been undercover secretly filming a new show for a year..." reads the clip's opening title card. Take, for example, convincing former Vice President Dick Cheney to sign a waterboard "kit" on camera, with a grin. Variety subsequently reported that the format of the new show is said to be similar to Da Ali G Show, and that "at least one or two episodes have already been produced or at least roughly assembled".
