Wednesday, the streaming platform—which earlier this week marked the retro feat of having shipped 5 billion DVDs to people who have presumably figured out time travel—shared a new trailer for the inspired-by-real-events tale.
For his first real dramatic role, Cohen plays Eli Cohen, a top Israel spy whose time in Syria is chronicled in the Gideon Raff-directed series. Noah Emmerich, Marc Maurille, and Alexander Siddig also star. The release date, thankfully, is the indeed imminent day of Sept. 6.
In an interview with The Playlist in July, director Gideon Raff—known for Prisoners of War and Homeland—said he was "really excited" about the series' potential. Catch the trailer, which captures that excitement well, up top.
Addressing his Who Is America ? Emmy nominations earlier this summer, Sacha Baron Cohen tongue-in-cheekishly thanked noted series subject Dick Cheney for his contributions of the "look of vacuous evil" variety.
"While I am flattered at these nods, it is a shame that my co-stars were not recognized," Cohen said within hours of the nominations being announced. "Particularly Dick Cheney, who I had hoped would come across on camera as someone who'd gleefully sent hundreds of thousands to their pointless death—and boy did he deliver."
Previously, Cohen expressed his wish that Who Is America ? had been able to tackle Alabama's idiotically on-brand abortion ban. Future episodes of the disguise-assisted hit, however, are highly unlikely.
