One thing Netflix is gone do is monetize some mess! The streamer has released the official trailer for “Depp v. Heard.”
The new limited series from director Emma Cooper covers the trial with the goal of presenting a neutral overview of what happens when the court of public opinion starts to overshadow reality.
For the first time, the three-part series presents Johnny Depp and Amber 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.
Ultimately, “Depp v. Heard” interrogates the role social media played in the trial, raising provocative, uncomfortable questions about how the conversations happening outside the courtroom may have influenced the outcome.
