HBO just dropped the trailer for its upcoming sports doping mockumentary “Tour de Pharmacy,” starring Stern Show veteran Andy Samberg, who co-created the film along with Murray Miller.
“Tour de Pharmacy” purports to offer a behind-the-scenes look at five cyclists played by Andy, Orlando Bloom, past Stern Show guest John Cena, Freddie Highmore (“Bates Motel”), and Daveed Diggs (“Hamilton”), all competing in a controversy-marred (and completely fictional) 1982 race. They’re flanked by an ensemble cast of entertainers, including past Stern Show guests J.J. Abrams, Joe Buck, Kevin Bacon, Mike Tyson, and real life cyclist Lance Armstrong. Jeff Goldblum, Will Forte, and Dolph Lundgren also co-star.
“People dope. Yeah,” explains Goldblum, in costume as an ’80s cyclist. “You know, this is a sport with literally hundreds of dollars on the line, and dozens of fans … [the] stakes are medium!”
“Tour de Pharmacy” premieres July 8 at 10 p.m. on HBO. Check out the official trailer (above).
