Andy Samberg, Lena Dunham and Kit Harington sign up for "7 Days in Hell". The three join the all-star cast of the one-off HBO Comedy Event about an epic seven-day match at Wimbledon.

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" star Samberg and "Game of Thrones" actor Harington will play fierce tennis rivals. Samberg will portray Aaron Williams, a superstar tennis "bad boy," while Harington will star as Charles Lloyd Poole, an Andy Murray-type prodigy and certified truck driver who takes on Williams at Wimbledon 2004.

Also tapped to star in the comedy movie are Samberg's fellow "Saturday Night Live" alums Fred Armisen and Will Forte, Karen Gillan, Howie Mandel, Michael Sheen, Mary Steenburgen, June Squibb and Soledad O'Brien. O'Brien will likely play herself while details of other characters are not available yet.

The sports mockumentary is written by Murray Miller ("Girls") based on an original concept by him and Samberg. Jake Szymanski ("SNL") is on board to direct, with Samberg, Miller and David Bernad ("Enlightened") as executive producers. Jonathan Buss ("The Sixties") will co-exec produce the project.
