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

The video was a recording of Mr. Trump slamming Cohen years ago, calling him a "third-rate character" who deserved to be punched.

[It] appears Cohen's Showtime series will be called Who Is America?

And yesterday, Cohen dropped the big teaser, confirming he had been secretly filming undercover for the last year.leading to a clip of Dick Cheney himself signing a waterboarding kit. The video is presented without context, but it appears Cohen was somehow able to convince the former US vice president to sign his "waterboard kit".

"That's a first, that's the first time I ever signed a waterboard", Cheney adds.

Written and directed by Cohen, the seven-episode series will explore individuals known and unknown across the American political spectrum.

Presenter Sacha Baron Cohen arrives at the 88th Academy Awards in Hollywood, California February 28, 2016.

"Sacha is a comedic genius who shocks you with his audacity, bravery and inventiveness", said Showtime president and CEO David Nevins. Now, new posters and trailers give us a peek at Baron Cohen's new character, who is ready to mock America in the aptly titled series Who is America?

He posted a clip of Donald Trump slating him from his office in Trump Tower, after Trump was duped into speaking to Ali G back in 2003. Behind the elaborate setup is a genuine quest for the truth about people, places and politics.

Showtime announced Monday the provocative comedian's new series along with its first official promo, premiere date, and a few details.

Also in 2012, Trump told HLN that Baron Cohen was a "bad guy" and a "moron" that "nobody cares about".
