HBO Making a Wimbledon Mockumentary with Andy Samberg and Kit Harrington
(via The Hollywood Reporter)
HBO is pushing forward with their comedy branding by doing a sports mockumentary, specifically of the legendary tennis tournament known as Wimbledon. Andy Samberg and Kit Harrington will star as rival tennis players and Fred Armisen, Lena Dunham, Karen Gillan, Michael, Sheen, and more have also been cast.
This is being billed as an one-off comedy event at HBO, perhaps similar to those Greatest Events in Television History at Adult Swim.
