Sacha Baron Cohen has gone undercover again, but this time it’s serious.
The first trailer for the upcoming spy thriller was unveiled by Netflix Wednesday.
The limited series hails from Homeland’s Gideon Raff who directed from his own script. The series tells the story of real-life Mossad agent Eli Cohen. The six-episode series is based on a true story and follows the Israeli clerk-turned-secret agent as he goes undercover in Syria.
The streaming giant describes Cohen’s character as “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.”
“Taking off the clothes doesn’t work anymore; I can’t put him away,” says Cohen’s character in the trailer.
The Spy also stars Noah Emmerich (The Americans), Hadar Ratzon Rotem (Homeland) and Waleed Zuaiter (Colony).
