Andy Samberg has steadily made his way to the top of the comedic food chain with a few successful projects in film and television over the past few years. He has been a long-time member of the hit FOX show “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”, and has also been a leading creative force in films like “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping”. His comedic team has begun to make great strides in the ultra-niche genre of sports mockumentaries on HBO, their first project “7 Days In Hell” being touted a great critical success. After taking on the highly competitive world of professional tennis, Samberg and team will now look to shed some light (by making light) of the highly competitive world of professional cycling.

Cycling To Win

Tour De Pharmacy”, the latest sports Mockumentary by HBO just launched its first trailer, and it looks like quite the star-studded event. The comedic short film will be set during the 1982 Tour de France competition, a period that is now considered one of the worst in the history of the sport due to the rampant abuse of drugs by the cyclists.

It is clear from the trailer that much like “7 Days In Hell”, “Tour De Pharmacy” will have a paper-thin plotline and will basically look to deliver on some serious laughs by greatly exaggerating the events of the somewhat somber cycle race. In order to do this, they have clearly recruited the help of some A-list actors and entertainers from across the industry.

What to expect

Just scrolling through the list of actors who will make an appearance during “Tour De Pharmacy” should be enough to get you excited about this film. The cast includes Andy Samberg, Orlando Bloom, Daveed Higgs, John Cena, Mike Tyson, J.J Abrams, Kevin Bacon, Will Forte, Danny Glover, Jeff Goldblum, Dolph Lundgren and many, many more celebrities.

Among the list is a truly unexpected name (especially considering the subject matter of the film), and it is quite the shocker to see him make an appearance in the trailer. I am talking about none other than Lance Armstrong – the most famous/infamous cyclist in the history of the sport. The athlete must have a really good sense of humor to turn up for this project, or he has too much time on his hands.

Either way, it makes for a great scenario in a comedic mockumentary, and I hope that “Tour De Pharmacy” is filled with many more genius ideas such as this one.

You can expect to see “Tour De Pharmacy” on HBO on July 8th, 2017, but you can catch the humorous trailer below until then.
