New on streaming this weekend: New docs about the Kardashian-Jenner dynasty and what happened in the operating room on the day of JFK's assassination and the feature film debut of "SNL" comedy trio Please Don't Destroy.

"House of Kardashian" available now on Peacock

What's happening: This three-episode documentary details the rise of the Kardashian-Jenner empire and it closely examines its most notable members— Kris and Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian.

The intrigue: The series includes interviews with several people close to the family including Caitlyn Jenner and Joe Francis, a longtime family friend and creator of the "Girls Gone Wild" franchise.

Quick takes: The documentary is a reminder of the numerous controversies the Kardashian-Jenner clan have benefited from and it says a lot about what and who we value.

"Please Don't Destroy: The Treasure of Foggy Mountain" available Friday on Peacock

What's happening: Produced by Judd Apatow and starring comedy trio Please Don't Destroy (Martin Herlihy, John Higgins and Ben Marshall), this film follows three friends and co-workers who go on a treasure hunt.

Quick takes: This 91-minute comedy doesn't even pretend to take itself seriously. The film felt like an elongated version of their skits.

What they're saying: We asked director Paul Briganti about what it was like to work with Apatow, who has directed and produced iconic comedies like "Bridesmaids" and "Superbad."

  • "He was very giving with his time, he would pitch things and help with the script. He had so many stories and lessons from past movies he worked on. It felt like (we were taking) a master class on producing a comedy feature," said Briganti.

"JFK: What The Doctors Saw" available now on Paramount+

What's happening: This documentary uncovers never before seen footage of a reunion of the doctors who operated on President John F. Kennedy after he was shot.

The intrigue: Several of the doctors say they observed an entry wound in Kennedy's neck, which fuels the conspiracy that there was more than one shooter involved in the president's death.
