The cabler announced Monday that it has ordered a new satirical half-hour series from the Borat headliner titled Who Is America? It seems we're about to find out, as he is set to star in a new series for Showtime reportedly called Who Is America? that takes on the Trump era.

Sacha Baron Cohen has given fans a tantalising first glimpse at what may be his most audacious project yet.

Another preview of the show was released on July 4th, with the British actor celebrating America's Independence Day by playing an old vlog in which President Donald Trump mocked Cohen for supposedly not being amusing. It then transitions to audio of what appears Cohen, in character, asking former vice president Dick Cheney to sign his "waterboard kit".

"Sacha is a comedic genius who shocks you with his audacity, bravery and inventiveness", Showtime president David Nevins said in a statement.

Cohen teased the project on July 4, releasing a cryptic video via social media that said, in part, "He's back as you've never seen him before". Behind the elaborate setup is a genuine quest for the truth about people, places and politics.

D'Arcy Short, Finch's opening partner, entered the top 10 rankings for the first time. In the Champions Trophy, in the final, he got that hundred.

"That's the first time I've ever signed a waterboard", Cheney says.

The show, which premieres July 15, has been largely steeped in mystery, with Sunday's trailer opening with the following line: "Imagine if Sacha Baron Cohen had been undercover secretly filming a new show for a year".

Now the actor has shared a second video which teases what has been reported to be a new series for Showtime.

Baron Cohen burst onto the comedy scene with 2000's Da Ali G Show, which received six Emmy nominations during its four-year run.
