The show is described as "the history lesson you didn’t know you needed."
"They're the most popular and alluring taboos we have," says Nicolas Cage in the trailer. "But the secrets to their strange power have been shrouded in mystery, until now."
"Join me on a journey through the history, evolution, and cultural impact of swear words."
A ton of famous faces are set to appear in the show as talking heads, including Joel Kim Booster, DeRay Davis, Open Mike Eagle, Nikki Glaser, Patti Harrison, London Hughes, Jim Jefferies, Zainab Johnson, Nick Offerman, Sarah Silverman, Baron Vaughn, and Isiah Whitlock Jr.
The official synopsis for the show reads:
An education in expletives: the history lesson you didn’t know you needed. 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."
The last time we saw Nicolas Cage he was starring in a movie called Jiu Jitsu where he fought aliens with Tony Jaa. So it is good to see he is keeping busy.
History of Swear Words will premiere on Netflix on January 5th.
