'Tour De Pharmacy' Trailer: Andy Samberg's New HBO Mockumentary Takes on Cycling

The trailer ends by showing "one anonymous informant" there to provide insider insight on the doping scandal- none other than Lance Armstrong, who wants to make very, very certain that you can't tell it's him. Are we as a culture now in a place where Armstrong can comfortably joke about doping when he lied and threatened people in denial for so many years? Tour de Pharmacy is set to cover the 1982 Tour de France, the famous cycling race held annually in the European country.

The trailer, below, came out Friday, and Armstrong has a cameo in it.

Tour de Pharmacy debuts July 8 on HBO and can also be seen on HBO Now, HBO GO and HBO On Demand.

Real Madrid in Champions League final despite defeat
The two football giants Real Madrid and Juventus are due to battle it out in Cardiff in the upcoming Champions League final.

The movie might turn out to be amusing, and maybe worth watching, but if you're a bike-racing fan, it looks kind of cringe-inducing, even as a mockumentary. Riddled with nefarious characters, that year's competition was a hornet's nest of moral depravity. Much like 7 Days in Hell was timed to coincide with the actual Wimbledon tournament, so will Tour de Pharmacy be released near the beginning of cycling's most prominent event.

Armstrong isn't the only notable star appearing in this HBO project, as the cast includes Samberg, Orlando Bloom, Mike Tyson, Dolph Lundgren, John Cena, Will Forte, J.J. Abrams, Joe Buck, Daveed Diggs, Kevin Bacon (gasps for air), Danny Glover, Jeff Goldblum, Chris Weber, James Marsden, Nathan Fieler and more.

Andy Samberg showed that he had some balls - tennis balls - by starring and executive producing the 2015 HBO mockumentary Seven Days in Hell, about the longest tennis match in history.
