The seven-episode series has been in the works over the past year. Who Is America? will “explore the diverse individuals, from the infamous to the unknown across the political and cultural spectrum, who populate our unique nation.”
“Sacha is a comedic genius who shocks you with his audacity, bravery and inventiveness,” said David Nevins, president and CEO of Showtime Networks. “He is the premier provocateur of our time, but not for the sake of ‘gotcha’ moments. Behind the elaborate setup is a genuine quest for the truth about people, places and politics. Nobody knows how to cause a stir like Sacha Baron Cohen, and it’s going to be fascinating to watch what happens when Who Is America? is released on the world.”
It was surprisingly bad, up until the very last interview.
Other segments were so OTT it wasn't believable and just juvenile. However, I am now wondering if that was the point. How are people campaigning to arm 4 year olds with mortars any less stupid that an artist with his own feces?
