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