The most youthful of the founding members of the Grateful Dead, Bob Weir, is now the grizzled survivor who can tell the tale of the long running band having something of a reunion this summer, in the documentary “The Other One: The Long Strange Trip of Bob Weir” (Netflix, streaming).
Mike Fleiss, the “Bachelor” producer who previously co-directed the music documentary “God Bless Ozzy Osbourne,” allows Weir to talk about band history history, feelings toward Dead fans, the plight of being a chick magnet and his relationship with the late Jerry Garcia. Weir also drives around old haunts in Haight-Ashbury and points out where the band lived and played. And yes, there’s some music, too.
Also new online today is the standup comedy special “Jen Kirkman: I’m Gonna Die Alone (And I Feel Fine)” (Netflix, streaming). And also on the service a third season comes for the series “Richie Rich” (Netflix, streaming), adapted from the comic book.
Rhiannon Giddens, Aloe Blacc, Gavin DeGraw, Harvey Keitel, Nick Jonas, Arturo Sandoval, Whitney Cummings, Jerry Lewis, Rob Riggle, J.R. Martinez, Gregory Porter and the American Military Spouses Choir all perform for veterans on “The Lincoln Awards: A Concert for Veterans and the Military Family” (PBS, 9 p.m., check local listings). It may be notable, however for bringing Brian Williams back to TV, though he taped this in January before he was suspended as NBC News anchor.
