"JFK: WHAT THE DOCTORS SAW" TO PREMIERE ON PARAMOUNT+ ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 14
October 30, 2023 - Paramount+ today announced that the documentary feature JFK: WHAT THE DOCTORS SAW from See It Now Studios will premiere exclusively on the service, beginning Tuesday, November 14, ahead of the 60th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Directed by Barbara Shearer (Loving Elvis), the film reveals startling medical observations about JFK's wounds when seven doctors who were in the Parkland Hospital ER reunite to discuss a day none of them can forget. In never-before-seen footage from this reunion, the doctors share in vivid detail their indelible memories of what they did and saw in Trauma Room 1.
Several of those doctors there that day remain certain that what they saw looked like an entry wound - a bullet hole in JFK's throat - an observation that contradicts what Americans have been told by numerous official investigations. This revelation would indicate that someone shot the President from the front, challenging the decades-old government narrative that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. JFK: WHAT THE DOCTORS SAW also examines the inconsistencies and gaps that plagued the official autopsy, raising even more questions about how many bullets hit the President and what damage they caused, leaving viewers with the looming question: Was there more than one shooter?
JFK: WHAT THE DOCTORS SAW is executive produced by Jacque Lueth, Bill Garnet and Barbara Shearer. Channel 5 in the UK, part of Paramount Global, is a co-producer with Guy Davies, who serves as executive producer. Executive producers for Lucky Elephant Media are Adam Somer, Cheryl Leib, Joseph Leib and Joseph Marvel. For See It Now Studios, Susan Zirinsky and Terence Wrong executive produce, and Aysu Saliba and Cara Tortora are supervising producers.
