History of Swear Words, hosted by Nicolas Cage, is a loud and proudly profane series that explores the origins, pop culture-usage, science and cultural impact of curse words. Through interviews with experts in etymology, pop culture, historians and entertainers, the six-episode series dives into the origins of “F**k”, “Sh*t”, “B*tch”, “D**k”, “Pu**y”, and “Damn.”

In addition to experts on history and language, there’s also some commentary from comedians Sarah Silverman and Nikki Glaser, film critic Elvis Mitchell, and many more. Though not featured in the trailer, there will also be appearances by Jim Jefferies, Nick Offerman, Baron Vaughn, and Senator Clay Davis himself, Isiah Whitlock Jr.
