Borat Gets a Gun
My God, just when I thought that the standards of American network television couldn’t possibly sink any lower, TV Squad brings word today that FOX is planning a “brand-new cop show about a police officer from Albania who is transplanted to the U.S. The one-hour project, currently titled Raffik, will be a fish-out-of-water story focusing on the officer’s reactions to the wonders of America.” So, the big question is, will this guy simply be Marshal Sam McCloud with borscht in his teeth, rather than toothpicks? Or maybe a less moronic Borat (aka Sacha Baron Cohen)? The only ray of hope for this endeavor lies in the fact that author-screenwriter Anthony Horowitz, the man behind Foyle’s War, is Raffik’s creator.
