The teaser for HBO’s upcoming Tour De Pharmacy is here and, spoiler alert, it’s hilarious. Then again, what else would you expect from Andy Samberg, who crushed it on Saturday Night Live with his band Lonely Island, crushed it in his first collaboration with HBO 7 Days In Hell and crushes it on Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine. What I’m trying to say is, Tour de Pharmacy is probably going to crush. Anytime you have the opportunity to make fun of Lance Armstrong, you take it, right?
Check out the trailer below.
Here’s the official plot synopsis from HBO which already has us chuckling.
In 1982, during a dark and fictitious time in cycling history, the sport’s most venerable, time-honored race was marred by the doping of virtually all of its competitors. Riddled with nefarious characters, that year’s competition was a hornet’s nest of moral depravity. Through the perspective of five riders, Tour De Pharmacy gives an inside look into the grim realities of the darkest event in a sport notoriously tainted by controversy.
Starring and executive produced by Andy Samberg (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”; HBO’s “7 Days In Hell”), and written and executive produced by Murray Miller (“King of the Hill”; HBO’s “Girls”), this fictional, none-too-serious look at that sordid event debuts SATURDAY, JULY 8 (10:00–10:50 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.
