The high-profile defamation trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard is probably the most discussed trial across the world in the current decade. While the trial ended with a verdict in favour of Depp after years, the legal team of Amber Heard has asked for a new trial after the wrong juror gave the verdict. Now, given the popularity of the trial, a documentary has been made by NBC News which is set for its OTT debut.
Titled A Marriage on Trial: Johnny Depp, Amber Heard and Truth in the Age of Social Media, the documentary will debut on NBC News Now and will be available for streaming on demand on NBCNews.com and Peacock. “The Depp vs Heard defamation trial evoked two distinct reactions — those who couldn’t get enough and those who received more than they wanted,” reads the description of the documentary by NBC News.
“The new deep-dive documentary explores why the trial overwhelmed social media, specifically TikTok, and what viewers missed if social media coverage was their only news source. In the wake of a verdict that surprised legal experts, NBC News examines how the trial evolved into a TikTok trial and what the verdict means for future domestic abuse cases,” the description of the 30-minute documentary further reads.
Featured interviews in the documentary include that of Amber Heard’s attorney Elaine Bredehoft, National Coalition Against Domestic Violence CEO Ruth Glenn, Jamie Abrams, NBC News senior breaking news reporter Doha Madani, NBC News tech and culture reporter Kat Tenbarge, and People Magazine’s Nigel Smith, among others.
