8 July 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

At the beginning of our interview, grasping for a way to describe the latest weirdo star-studden comedy sports special airing on HBO, IndieWire referred to “Tour De Pharmacy” as “the latest installment in the ‘Legends of Sports’ franchise.”

“I love that you said that,” star/executive producer Andy Samberg said.

“Are we allowed to say we have a franchise? I mean, I’ll take it,” writer Murray Miller said.

By “franchise,” we meant the ongoing “30 for 30”-inspired sports mockumentary series that began in the summer of 2015 with “7 Days in Hell,” a star-studded comedy special that chronicled a fictional tennis match that reached absurd heights.

‘Tour de Pharmacy’ Review: I Want One of These Sports Comedies Every Year

8 July 2017 7:04 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Two years ago, we got the tennis comedy 7 Days in Hell. Done in the style of a sports documentary, the movie recounted the seven-day saga between two tennis stars. The film only ran for 43 minutes, but it packed in as much absurdity as possible, using the deadly serious gravitas featured in 30 for 30 documentaries to play against the ridiculous characters. Director Jake Szymanski and writer Murray Miller have returned with yet another sports mockumentary, this time taking on cycling with Tour de Pharmacy. The format and tone of the comedy will feel familiar to fans of … »

Andy Samberg on ‘Tour de Pharmacy’, Jeff Goldblum, and the Future of ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’

5 July 2017 8:07 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In 2015, HBO dropped a sports documentary called 7 Days in Hell that sure looked like a genuine chronicle of a legendary tennis match, but was actually an artfully concocted comedy from the minds of Andy Samberg, director Jake Szymanski, and writer Murray Miller. The trio have reunited for an all-new sports mockumentary follow-up of sorts called Tour de Pharmacy, debuting on HBO on July 8th, this time taking on the sport of cycling. Narrated by Jon Hamm, this mockumentary chronicles a 1982 cycling event in all its silly glory, with Samberg, Orlando Bloom, Daveed Diggs, John Cena, … »

Best TV to Watch in July: Dr. Dre Doc, 'Game of Thrones' Returns and More

30 June 2017 9:56 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

HBO is TV's unofficial king of summer, with the return of water-cooler dominator Game of Thrones, a deep-dive portrait of twin musical innovators Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine and Andy Samberg doing for professional cycling what he did for tennis. There's plenty to peruse beyond premium cable, of course, as the networks ready sci-fi–inflected procedurals and FX unveils an ambitious new period drama set in the cradle of crack cocaine. Here's what you need to be tuning into this month.

How a ‘Nightmare’ Audition Finally Paid Off for Andrew Rannells

12 June 2017 11:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Girls,” HBO / Season 6 ep. 7, “The Bounce”

Written by Murray Miller and Tami Sagher, Directed by Richard Shepard

Andrew Rannells’ character Elijah Krantz, the narcissistic, wry and insightful gay ex-boyfriend-cum-roommate of Hannah Horvath (Lena Dunham) on “Girls,” has been a scene-stealer since season one of the Emmy-winning HBO series. In “The Bounce,” former love Dill (Corey Stoll) comes racing back into Elijah’s arms just as he musters the courage to audition for the Broadway musical adaptation of the big-screen comedy “White Men Can’t Jump.”

Elijah belts out a rousing, pitch-perfect rendition of “Let Me Be Your Star,” from the defunct NBC series “Smash.” He seems poised to become a star. And then they bring in the basketballs.

Rannells: “Lena [Dunham] had said she wanted to explore this idea of Elijah getting into musical theater and that was something we had sort of teased in the past. In the first season we had talked about how he had »

Andy Samberg’s Tour de Pharmacy gets a ridiculously fun new trailer

12 June 2017 1:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The stakes are medium in a brand new trailer for the latest HBO sports mockumentary from the minds of Andy Samberg (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and Murray Miller (Girls), Tour de Pharmacy. Take a trip into the world of competitive and drug-fueled bike riding by clicking down below…

In 2015, Samberg teamed up with Game of Thrones star Kit Harington to tell the hilarious (and completely untrue) story about two tennis rivals who battle it out at Wimbledon for seven days in 7 Days in Hell. While the special didn’t necessarily earn high ratings, it did well critically and developed a devoted following from comedy fans, encouraging HBO to greenlight a similar fictitious sports comedy, this time set during 1982’s Tour de France.

Not unlike 7 Days in Hell and most of Samberg’s other projects (including Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping), Tour de Pharmacy is filled to the brim with celebrity cameos, to »

Watch the trailer for Andy Samberg’s mockumentary Tour de Pharmacy

20 May 2017 1:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

HBO and Brooklyn Nine-Nine star and Saturday Night Live veteran Andy Samberg will be tackling the world of performance-enhancing drugs in the comedic Tour de Pharmacy, a mockumentary about the “dark and fictitious time in cycling history”: the 1982 Tour de France where everyone, apparently, was doping on drugs to win the race. Watch the trailer here…

In 1982, 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.

The 50-minute comedy special was written by GirlsMurray Miller and is executive produced by Miller and Samberg. Joining Samberg in the film is a host of talent, such as John Cena, »

5 More ‘30 for 30’ Docs That Andy Samberg Could (And Should) Spoof Next

19 May 2017 11:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

HBO has garnered acclaim for their prestige TV offerings, but one of their most underrated contributions to the television landscape is 2015’s “7 Days in Hell,” a mockumentary of the infamous John Isner/Nicolas Mahut Wimbledon showdown that shattered the record for longest tennis match in history. On the strengths of stars Andy Samberg and Kit Harrington, “7 Days in Hell” also took aim at a few of the legendary tennis rivalries of the 70s, 80s and 90s that brought the sport into the mainstream.

It’s a goofy, perfectly timed spoof that plays with the familiar tropes of sports docs, namely the ones in Espn’s “30 for 30” series. Apparently, it worked so well that HBO wanted more. Samberg and “7 Days in Hell” writer Murray Miller have reteamed for another trip through niche sports history with “Tour de Pharmacy,” a fictional look at a doping scandal in the world of 80s cycling. »
