HBO has unveiled the first trailer for Tour de Pharmacy, an upcoming mockumentary comedy starring and executive produced by Andy Samberg.

Director Jake Szymanski and Samberg reunite following the well received 7 Days in Hell, a fictional exposé that saw Samberg and Kit Harington facing off as two of the greatest tennis players of all-time.

The targets this time are the doping scandals that have plagued the world of competitive cycling, particularly the Tour de France. Many, many famous faces making appearances, including Orlando Bloom, Freddie Highmore, Mike Tyson, J.J. Abrams, John Cena, Will Forte, Kevin Bacon, Jeff Goldblum and Dolph Lundgren. Plus, a certain cyclist you may have heard of turns up towards the end of the trailer.

Tour de Pharmacy will be hitting HBO on July 8.

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.
