Netflix has unveiled a new and exciting full trailer for Sacha Baron Cohen’s upcoming spy thriller series, The Spy, and it seems, unlike anything that Cohen has done before he is serious and quite impressive in the trailer. This is the most serious role for Cohen and he did it perfectly.
The Spy is inspired by the real-life story of “former notorious Mossad agent, Eli Cohen, who successfully goes undercover in Syria and ultimately changed the course of Israel’s history.”
The series also stars Noah Emmerich (The Americans), Hadar Ratzon Rotem (Homeland), and Waleed Zuaiter (Colony). Here’s the official synopsis that was shared for it:
The series stars Emmy-nominated Sacha Baron Cohen (Who is America?) as Cohen, a man who wants nothing more than to be of service to his country, but he does his job so well that he finds it hard to strip off his double identity. Noah Emmerich (The Americans) plays Dan Peleg, Eli’s Mossad handler who tries to ease his own guilt over the sacrifices Eli makes, Hadar Ratzon Rotem (Homeland) portrays Eli’s wife, Nadia, who is left to raise their family on her own and knows something isn’t right about her husband’s government job, and Waleed Zuaiter (Colony) plays Amin Al-Hafez, a military officer who thinks he’s found the perfect ally in the undercover Cohen.
The Spy will hit Netflix on September 6th.
