DISCOVERY+ ORDER THREE SPECIALS OF 'VS' SERIES

Discovery+ has commissioned three more specials in it's 'vs' series, after the first two-part special on Johnny vs Amber became the streamer’s 'top performing acquisition driver in the UK'.



The three specials will be a follow-up on Johnny vs Amber, focusing on the US perspective, Coleen vs Rebekah and Britney vs Jamie.



Nick Hornby, Co-ceo at Optomen TV, said: “The discovery+ ‘vs’ format allows viewers to make up their own minds about some of the most reported stories of our times, and will offer an in-depth look at them from both sides.”


Clare Laycock, SVP Planning & Insights, Head of Entertainment, Warner Bros. Discovery UK, said: "When we commissioned Johnny vs Amber for discovery+, we knew that we were tackling a very sensitive case but one with huge global profile and interest that would resonate with our audience...



"Since it premiered in December last year, Johnny vs Amber has been one of the most successful unscripted discovery+ Originals, currently the number 1 acquisition driver in the UK as well topping engagement figures and traveling globally across the US, EMEA and our wider international markets...


"This unique format examines each side of the story as played out in the legal trials and the court of public opinion, with access to opposing legal teams, witnesses, reporters as well as personal archive and testimony to give viewers insight into both sides of some of the most widely debated and high profile celebrity cases."



The three new series will drop on discovery+ in the UK later this year.
