"Imagine if Sacha Baron Cohen had been undercover secretly filming a new show for a year," Showtime suggests in the teaser for a new TV show from the notorious prankster behind Ali G, Borat, and Brüno.
After teasing a mysterious Trump-bashing project on July 4, Cohen unveiled a clip from his new interview-based show, featuring Dick Cheney. The video is presented without context, but it appears Cohen was somehow able to convince the former U.S. vice president to sign his "waterboard kit."
Cheney famously told reporters in 2009 that he is "a strong believer" in the highly controversial water-based torture technique to coax information out of enemies. In Cohen's teaser clip, Cheney can be heard chuckling, "That's a first. That's the first time I've ever signed a waterboard."
The untitled show is cloaked in secrecy, but Showtime has been releasing mysterious teasers for a series arriving on July 15 that promises to be "shameless," "unhinged," and "cold-blooded." One teaser even called it "perhaps the most dangerous TV show in history."
It's been 14 years since the last season of Cohen's Da Ali G show aired on HBO, but it seems we're finally a week away from his return to television. Check out the teaser videos above and see the Trump promo clip below.
