With the exception of John McEnroe and Andre Agassi’s past hairstyles, the game of tennis is typically anything but funny. Leave it to Andy Samberg to flip the script. This summer, The Lonely Island and Brooklyn Nine Nine star will join Game of Thrones heartthrob Kit Harington in bringing a few laughs to the dusty sport with Jake Szymanski’s HBO mockumentary, 7 Days in Hell.
Here’s the official synopsis: “This sports ‘documentary’ brings together Andy Samberg and Kit Harington for a look back at a pair of fictional players from the not-too-distant past, who played the longest and greatest tennis match of all time: a seven-day, five-set marathon that took literally everything out of them. In addition to highlights (and lowlights) from the match, the special looks back at the lives and careers of the competitors: Aaron Williams (Samberg), a hyper-malcontent, and Charles Poole (Harington), a dim-witted prodigy who carried England’s hopes for a tennis champion on his shoulders.”
Today, the network released a hilarious one-minute preview of the film, which you can catch below. 7 Days In Hell premieres on HBO on Saturday, July 11th at 10 p.m.
