Watch: Nicolas Cage chronicles the ‘History of Swear Words’ in new trailer

'History of Swear Words' arrives on Netflix on January 5

The first trailer for Netflix’s forthcoming Nicolas Cage-starring show History of Swear Words is here. The clip opens with a well-dressed Cage jumping out of his chair and screaming the F-bomb.

The six episode comedic docu-series is exactly what it sounds like, and it will see the 56-year-old Oscar winner tracing the origins of curse words including “fuck,” “shit,” “bitch,” “dick,” “pussy,” and “damn.”

Throughout the show, Cage will discuss the etymology and pop culture with expert linguists and special celebrity guests like Nick Offerman, Sarah Silverman, Nikki Glaser, Patti Harrison, Baron Vaughn, and more.
