Kit Harington v Andy Samberg in HBO's '7 Days in Hell' Teaser Trailer
What if a tennis match lasted 7 days? That's the premise behind 7 Days in Hell, a mockumentary in the style of Christopher Guest's work that follows the two tennis players during the legendary match in 2004. In comparison to real life, the longest tennis match lasted 3 days, which is actually quite long considering it's a set of tennis games that just won't end. In 7 Days in Hell, Andy Samberg battles Kit Harington on the court and it looks like it's going to be hilarious. This first teaser is only 60 seconds and plays more like a sports promo for ESPN, but I love it, they've totally sold me on this. You just need to see the footage below.
7 Days in Hell is a fictional documentary-style expose on the rivalry between two tennis stars who battled it out in a 2004 match that lasted seven days.

The cast includes Karen Gillan, Lena Dunham, Michael Sheen, Mary Steenburgen, Howie Mandel, Fred Armisen, and June Squibb; plus real-life tennis stars Serena Williams, John McEnroe and Chris Evert.
