‘The Treasure Of Foggy Mountain’ First Look: New Comedy From Please Don’t Destroy Hits Peacock In November

Being a featured player on SNL has become an easy launching pad into feature films. The list of stars to emerge from the sketch show is long, and now you can add comedy troupe Please Don’t Destroy to that list. The trio known for their popular digital shorts have revealed the first look at their upcoming comedy, The Treasure of Foggy Mountain, due to hit Peacock in November.

All three members of Please Don’t Destroy; Martin Herlihy, John Higgins, and Ben Marshall, star as co-workers and best friends who trek into the forest to find an ancient treasure. Of course, things go comically awry, as they face strange beasts, cult leaders, and more.

The film is directed by Paul Briganti, who helmed the trio’s “Three Sad Virgins’ sketch, and features appearances by Bowen Yang, Conan O’Brien, Meg Statler, X Mayo, Sunita Mani and more.

Here’s the synopsis: In PLEASE DON’T DESTROY: THE TREASURE OF FOGGY MOUNTAIN, John Goodman narrates the adventure of Ben, Martin, and John, three childhood friends turned deadbeat co-workers, who fend off hairless bears, desperate park rangers (Meg Stalter and X Mayo) and a hypocritical cult leader (Bowen Yang) in the hopes of finding a priceless treasure, only to discover that finding the treasure is the easiest part of their journey. Oh, and Conan O’Brien plays Ben’s dad in it.

The Treasure of Foggy Mountain hits Peacock on November 17th.
