We’ve got just the news to lift you up and over the Hump Day. Sacha Baron Cohen, who’s got a movie coming out in which he’ll play a football hooligan, has another treat for us. Baron Cohen signed a deal with FXX for the Da Ali G Show. We’ll be seeing unaired episodes as well as a new introduction. Oh, you certainly are spoiling us, Sacha. The Hollywood Reporter reports:
“We’re thrilled to be in business with Sacha Baron Cohen,” said FX Networks and FX Productions president of original programming, Nick Grad, who made the announcement with Eric Schrier. “He is an amazing talent, and we look forward to him developing new series for FXP. We’re also excited to introduce Da Ali G Show and Sacha’s characters to a new audience on FXX. And we can’t wait to see how he will incorporate new, original content in the episodes.”
We just hope the new stuff can live up to the classics.
