Johnny Depp and Amber Heard made headlines last year for their highly publicized defamation lawsuit. Johnny C. Depp II v. Amber Heard, a court case that aired live to viewers around the world in 2022, will be the subject of the documentary series Depp v. Heard, which will be released on Netflix in 2023. The highly publicized lawsuit involving Amber Laura Heard was the result of years of back and forth between the two A-list celebrities.
Netflix acquires Heard vs. Depp as a documentary series
The three-part documentary series on the Amber Heard vs Johnny Depp trial aims to recap the progress of the trial and examine the results, particularly the choice to make it public. Episodes two and three look in particular at how online coverage influenced the trial and how social media reacted to the ruling.
The documentary series premiered from May 21, 2022 to May 23, 2022 on Channel 4 over a three-day period. The length of each episode was 47 minutes.
The executive producer and director of the new documentary series is Emma Cooper. The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes, a Netflix Original from last year, and other Netflix productions such as The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann and Bikram: Yogi, Guri, and Predator were all edited by her under her Empress Films banner. Another planned Netflix Original documentary about the “life and death of renowned British television presenter Jill Dando” has Cooper as executive producer.

Meanwhile, speaking of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, the ex-couple has now put the past behind them. Heard moved to Spain after the trial and started over with her daughter Oonagh. The actress made her first public appearance at the Taormina Festival promoting her movie In The Fire. She will also play a role in the Aquaman sequel. Depp, on the other hand, received spectacular reviews for his performance in Jeanne Du Barry, at the Cannes Film Festival.
