Sacha Baron Cohen is going to be a busy boy as he prepares to bring his alter ego Ali G to the States.

Ali G’s comeback will be called Ali G: Rezurection and will premiere in February next year and previously unaired episodes of the comedy will be broadcast on FXX in 2014.

In addition to the screening of a select number of episodes of the original show, which aired on America’s HBO, the new deal will ensure that unseen episodes are screened.

Plus the 42-year-old actor and creator of Borat and Bruno, will also film introductions for the episodes.

FX Networks and FX Productions’ Nick Grad said: "We're thrilled to be in business with Sacha Baron Cohen.

"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."
