Who Is America? is reportedly set to premiere in the United States later this month.

Producers explain: "Famous for creating a roster of iconic moments and incendiary characters, Baron Cohen returns to series television for the first time in more than a decade, writing and directing Who Is America?".

Last week, Baron Cohen turned heads with a Fourth of July Twitter post that teased a new satirical project that possibly targeted his longtime foe, Donald Trump.

Now, the first teaser for his new series for U.S. network Showtime has dropped, and it looks very promising, indeed.

Showtime, the channel that is set to air the new show in America, have described it as "shameless", "unhinged", and "cold-blooded", and that it might be "perhaps the most risky show in the history of television".

Here's a couple of teasers for the project, which looks to be called Who Is America? Take, for example, convincing former Vice President Dick Cheney to sign a waterboard "kit" on camera, with a grin. "Who Is America?" premieres on streaming, online and On Demand this Sunday, July 15 at midnight ET (9 p.m. PT July 14), and will premiere on air that same night at 10 p.m. ET. Very nice news you're about to read! Cheney responds, "Sure", and adds with a smile, "That's the first time I've ever signed a waterboard".

Despite making a name for himself as an outrageous comedian and provocateur, Baron Cohen has been relatively quiet in recent years.

We see Cheney on screen, sitting in an armchair and happily signing the apparent torture device.

There has also been a sighting in the wild of stealth advertising for the show, one of which features the potential title "Who is America?".
