Johnny Depp & Amber Heard’s Defamation Trial Gets A Closer Look In Netflix Docuseries
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s defamation trial is headed to the docuseries section of Netflix. The trailer debuted for “Depp v. Heard” this week, which is a three-part documentary that is “examining the infamous defamation case that captured the world’s attention and became the world’s first trial by TikTok,” according to the streaming service’s synopsis. “Depp v. Heard” is directed by Emma Cooper, who made Netflix’s 2022 documentary “The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes.” The pair’s heated defamation case wrapped up last year and a settlement was announced in December 2022. A jury sided with Johnny’s claim that the “Aquaman” actress had defamed him in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed, in which she described herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse,” but did not mention her ex-husband by name. Johnny was awarded more than $10 million in damages, while Amber was awarded $2 million in damages in her defamation countersuit.
