A mockumentary that chronicles the prevalence of doping in the world of professional cycling.
“Literally hundreds of dollars are on the line. Stakes are medium”
The HBO movie directed by Andy Samberg pokes fun at the pro cycling world and it’s issues with doping. It features an impressive cast with a lot of familiar faces from SNL. It stars Andy Samberg, Kevin Bacon, Orlando Bloom, Daniel Glover, Maya Rudolph, John Cena and James Marsden.
Believe it or Lance Armstrong even makes an appearance in the comedy.
“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,” reads HBO’s film description. “Riddled with nefarious characters, that year’s competition was a hornet’s nest of moral depravity.”
The mokumentary is set to premiere July 8.
