Andy Samberg and Murray Miller are developing a follow-up to their comedy special “7 Days in Hell” for HBO. “Tour de Pharmacy,” a sports mockumentary, will take a look at the rampant doping in the world of professional cycling. Samberg and Miller will executive produce the special through their company Legends of Sport.

Samberg can currently be seen in the feature film “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.” The fourth season of his comedy series “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” is set to premiere this fall on Fox.
