New Sacha Baron Cohen Show Details and Videos Emerge

We previously reported that Cohen had some kind of Trump-related project in the works, and now it appears to be a TV series for Showtime according to Variety. Baron Cohen recently teased the show with a video posted to Twitter, featuring real footage of Donald Trump calling him a "third-rate character" and telling him to "go to school, learn about being amusing". The format will be in the style of "Da Ali G Show", Baron Cohen's breakout series that aired on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom and HBO in the the early aughts. The show introduced viewers to three distinct characters who were out to interview people including the streetwise buffoon Ali G, the gay Austrian fashion enthusiast Bruno Gehard, and Kazakh reporter Borat Sagdiyev. Baron Cohen would flawless this technique in many of his feature films, in which he donned various wild personas.

The first season of Sacha Baron Cohen's Da Ali G Show premiered in 2000 and was only in England.

The new videos that were released by Showtime are even more cryptic than the Donald Trump 4th of July teaser.

Scientists create embryos, hope to save near-extinct rhino
The two remaining female northern white rhinos, who are infertile, were doomed to live out their lives as the last of their kind. In the meantime, the team will practice, implanting some of their hybrid embryos into SWR surrogates "to test the system".

The larger question with this new series isn't so much about what kind of stunts Cohen will pull, although if it's directed at entities like Trump and Simpson, it's likely to be talked about. Or will it be yet another one-off joke like his jabs at the president in 2016's Grimsby, to add fuel to the pair's lengthy and antagonistic feud? Whether or not he'll conjure up new characters for the series remains up in the air, but Variety notes "it's believed that at least one or two episodes have already been produced or at least roughly assembled". However, both Showtime and representatives for Baron Cohen did not comment on the project.

This Showtime series will be Baron Cohen's second TV project in recent months. Set in the 1960s and also starring Noah Emmerich ("The Americans"), the series features Baron Cohen as Israeli spy Eli Cohen. So with this Showtime series and The Spy on its way, you'll see more Baron Cohen on your TV screens very soon, whether you want to or not.
