Tom Arnold swears he’s gonna get to the bottom of this whole “Trump tapes” thing, even if he has to take unusual routes. That includes hitting up Peter Cottontail to find out what he’s got on POTUS, in the first look at the actor’s new Viceland series, “The Hunt for the Trump Tapes.”
“I’m going to dig as deep as I have to, to expose the ugly truth about the ugly man,” Arnold says in the minute-long trailer.
Viceland’s new series “The Hunt for the Trump Tapes with Tom Arnold,” will see Arnold doing some “citizen journalism” to find out the truth behind the rumored recordings of Donald Trump. It will begin with Arnold’s appearance on the “Howard Stern Show” and continues to follow the comedian as he meets with figures like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Penn Jillette, Judd Apatow and Rosie O’Donnell. And, apparently, the Easter Bunny.
“The Hunt for the Trump Tapes” will show the frenzy of attention surrounding Arnold’s surprise meeting with Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, which took place earlier this summer in New York. The series will also feature Arnold’s meetings with veteran journalists like “The New Yorker” writer Jane Mayer, “Russian Roulette” authors David Corn and Michael Isikoff and former New York Daily News columnist A.J. Benza.
Other notable figures include Trump’s former business associate Felix Sater and former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, as well as “The Apprentice” executive producer Mark Burnett, owner of the Miss Universe Pageant, Ari Emmanuel, American Media CEO David Pecker and TMZ’s Harvey Levin.
Watch the trailer above.
“The Hunt for the Trump Tapes with Tom Arnold” will premiere on Tuesday, Sept. 18, at 10:30 p.m. on Viceland.
