In 2018, American actress Amber Heard wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post about her experience publicly speaking out against sexual abuse.

This piece started a chain of events, including a legal dispute between the pair with a trial that started in April 2022. This trial became one of the most followed court cases in history as cameras were allowed in the courtroom, unlike most high-profile cases. 

Depp

 

Although the case ended with Depp being awarded US$10 million (RM43,930,000.00) in compensatory damages and US$350,000 (RM1,537,550.00) in punitive damages, it seems that Netflix will be presenting an overview of what happened during the trial and what happens when the court of public opinion starts to overshadow reality in a three-part series called Depp v. Heard.

The new limited series from director Emma Cooper presents Depp and Heard’s testimony side-by-side, using 200 hours of live-streamed trial coverage from the mainstream news and citizen commentators on TikTok and Twitter.

Court

 

According to a blog post by Netflix, Depp v. Heard interrogates social media’s role in the trial, raising provocative, uncomfortable questions about how the conversations happening outside the courtroom may have influenced the outcome.

Cooper was behind hit documentaries “The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes”, “The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann,” and “Bikram: Yogi, Guri, Predator.”

Depp v. Heard premieres on Netflix on Aug.16.
