DEPP V HEARD: CHANNEL 4 ANNOUNE THREE-PART DOCUMENTARY

This three-part documentary series is the first in-depth look at the defamation trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, which went viral and captured the public’s interest in a way rarely seen before.



The trial of Depp v Heard, in which both parties accused each other of domestic abuse, was a global media event and dubbed “the first TikTok trial”. It raised huge questions about violence, gender and the memeifcation of justice in the era of post-truth.



The series, made by Bitachon365 and co-producer Empress Films, places Depp and Heard’s testimonies side by side for the first time, bringing together courtroom footage, news sources, existing interview footage and User Generated Content from various social media platforms to explore some of the extraordinary moments of the trial and the impact this had on public opinion at the time.


From BAFTA-nominated series director Emma Cooper, these films aim to be an incisive needle into the vein of what society and popular culture is in the 2020s.



More details will be announced in due course.
