With the debut of its three-part documentary series, Depp v. Heard, Netflix will look into one of the most high-profile court fights in Hollywood history. Over a year after Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s highly publicized judicial battle, a new series on the streaming service claims to provide new insight into the defamation trial. The Emmy-nominated director Emma Cooper will be making her series debut on August 16.

In Depp v. Heard, viewers will be transported back to the center of the trial that rocked Hollywood and ignited heated debates online. The documentary investigates the contentious court battle between the exes, delving into the circumstances that led to the trial and the effects of the trial itself.

The documentary’s two-minute teaser features clips from the trial. Giving viewers a taste of the emotional testimony and vigorous defense provided by both sides. According to reports, the series will feature equal time for both Depp’s and Heard’s testimonies. Letting viewers make up their own minds about the controversial case.

Depp’s defamation action against Heard, filed in March 2019, was the primary focus of the trial. He claimed that the Aquaman star had ruined his reputation with an anonymous op-ed she had written on domestic abuse for The Washington Post.

A lengthy legal battle, complete with public scrutiny and media attention. Ensued after Heard accused Depp of physical and sexual assault during their turbulent marriage. The trial was already dramatic, but the vociferous denials of each other’s claims just added to the tension by laying all the dirty laundry on display for all to see.

Depp had asked for $50 million in damages in court documents, while Heard countersued for an eye-popping $100 million. The jury ultimately found in favor of Depp and awarded him $15 million in damages.

Heard and Depp’s legal battle lasted months, but they eventually settled out of court. With Heard agreeing to pay Depp $1 million. Nonetheless, the trial’s effects went well beyond the courtroom, inspiring what one commenter called a “cultural movement.”

The trial depicted in Depp v. Heard is not the first time it has been turned into a movie. Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial, a movie that Tubi TV originally released, also focused on the dramatic proceedings in court.

Many people are looking forward to learning more about the trial that captivated the world in Netflix’s upcoming documentary. We believe the series succeeds in giving viewers a full and fair picture of the contentious judicial struggle by showing both Depp’s and Heard’s testimonies.

The series announcement has generated new conversations about the case, the intricacies of public connections, and the toll that court fights can take on people’s lives.
