SHOWTIME
® Original Series Arrives on DVD November 6

 

 H OLLYWOOD, Calif. (October 7, 2018) – From the mind of Oscar® nominated, multiple BAFTA® winner and Golden Globe winner Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat) comes the most talked-about series of the year, WHO IS AMERICA, arriving on DVD November 6 from Showtime Networks, CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution. The collection features all seven episodes from the acclaimed comedy series alongside over 30 minutes of never-before-released extended interviews and deleted scenes.

Famous for creating some of the funniest movies the world has known, Baron Cohen returns to TV for the first time in 15 years. WHO IS AMERICA features incendiary characters so believably performed that they can exist in the real world and even convince some of America’s most notable political and pop culture figures. Hoodwinking high-profile names such as Bernie Sanders, O.J. Simpson, Corinne Olympios,
Ted Koppel, Dick Cheney and more, Baron Cohen pulls back the curtain and provides a shocking look at the nation.

Baron Cohen created 6 hilarious characters in the most biting satire of the Trump era: right-wing conspiracy theorist and citizen journalist Billy Wayne Ruddick, Jr., PhD; Dr. Nira Cain-N’Degeocello, a Democratic activist and far-left lecturer on gender studies; the British ex-convict and artist Rick Sherman; Erran Morad, an Israeli
anti-terrorism expert with unconventional tactics against terrorists, immigrants and pedophiles; Italian billionaire playboy and fashion photographer Gio Monaldo; and OMGWhizzBoyOMG!, a Finnish YouTuber.

The WHO IS AMERICA DVD is presented in full frame format with English 5.1 Surround Dolby Digital and English SDH subtitles.
