Tour De Pharmacy Trailer

Back in 2015, HBO debuted a sports mockumentary called 7 Days in Hell that chronicled fictional tennis players Aaron Williams (Andy Samberg) and Charles Poole (Kit Harington) who played a match to end all tennis matches: a seven-day, five-set marathon that took everything out of them. It was a hilarious 45-minute foray into tennis presented in the style of HBO Sports documentaries, and now the world of competitive cycling is getting the same treatment.

Tour De Pharmacy focuses on five cyclists in 1982 as they dealt with the controversy of nearly every athlete doping in order to get an edge on competition. The cast includes Andy Samberg, John Cena, Freddie Highmore, Daveed Diggs, Orlando Bloom and they somehow got Lance Armstrong to appear and even poke fun at his own relationship with doping.
