Ali G is back, sort of. Sacha Baron Cohen's production company Four By Two has signed a first-look deal with FX to air Ali G: Rezurection on FXX.
Deadline is reporting that the Borat star is bringing back Ali G for FXX.
There won't exactly be new episodes, but some new content. Cohen would create new, original introductions for the show, Da Ali G Show, but not new episodes. All the episodes from the British series would air, including several never before seen in the U.S.
The show created 12 episodes for HBO after the premium cable network picked up the show. There was a six-episode first season that was originally only aired on the U.K.'s Channel 4.
"We're thrilled to be in business with Sacha Baron Cohen," FX Networks and FX Productions president of original programming Nick Grad said in a press release, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
"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."
