Sacha Baron Cohen has shared a few details about his upcoming Showtime series, which is reportedly titled “Who Is America?,” and set to premiere on July 15 on Stan.

After cryptically announcing the show with a clip mocking Trump last week, Cohen tweeted out a brief video of an interview with former vice president Dick Cheney on Sunday.

In the clip, Cohen’s off-screen interviewer asks Cheney to sign a “waterboard kit,” which Cheney subsequently does with a smile and says, “That’s the first time I ever signed a waterboard.”

The video leads with text that reads, “Imagine if Sacha Baron Cohen had been undercover secretly filming a new show for a year…”

Vulture also noted on Sunday that posters for the series were up in the Park Slope neighbourhood of Brooklyn, New York. The posters teased images of Cohen’s new characters for the series and an airtime of Sundays at 10 pm.

Watch the clip with Cheney below:

“Who is America?” will premiere exclusively on Stan July 15, with new episodes weekly, same day as the U.S.
