HBO has released the trailer for its upcoming mockumentary “Tour De Pharmacy,” a spoof of the widespread use of performance-enhancing drugs in professional cycling. The Jake Szymanski-directed satire features an all-star cast, including Andy Samberg, Orlando Bloom, Daveed Diggs, Will Forte, Julia Ormond, Phylicia Rashad, Dolph Lundgren, Mike Tyson, Maya Rudolph, Chris Webber, and more.
Written by Murray Miller (“King of the Hill,” “Girls”), “Tour De Pharmacy” explores a dark and fictitious time in cycling history —during 1982— when nearly all competitors were doping. Through the perspective of five riders, the mockumentary offers a “none-too-serious” inside look into what went on during the controversial time.
The film is executive produced by Samberg and Miller, the duo behind last year’s hilarious mockumentary “7 Days in Hell.” That film starred Samberg and Kit Harington as two tennis rivals who battled it out in a 2001 match that lasted seven days.
“Tour De Pharmacy” premieres July 8 at 10 pm on HBO. Check out the trailer below.
