Please Don't Destroy: The Treasure of Foggy Mountain hits the streaming platform November 17.
If you love the Please Don't Destroy digital shorts on Saturday Night Live, then you're in for a serious treat, because a movie from the creators is coming to Peacock this fall.
Titled Please Don’t Destroy: The Treasure of Foggy Mountain, the film was written by, executive-produced, and stars PDD's Ben Marshall, John Higgins, and Martin Herlihy — and, naturally, it stars a slew of comedy heavy-hitters. Including Conan O'Brien. Yes!
"They have this group chemistry that feeds off each other," the film's director, Paul Briganti, told EW about working with the PDD trio. "They're so happy when they're together. That is sort of the core and the warmth of the movie."
And on O'Brien's surprising role, Briganti reveals, "He was so good with the younger comedians, and he almost took them under his wing. He was like a little comedy Santa Claus, just going around, giving little gifts to everybody."
