Depp v Heard will start on Channel 4 on Sunday, 21 May at 9PM.

The next episodes will air on Monday, 22 May at 10PM and Tuesday, 23 May at 10PM.

A synopsis shares: “Depp v Heard charts the tumultuous defamation trial between superstar Johnny Depp and his former wife Amber Heard – the first in US history to be fully broadcast live. Mixing courtroom footage with the incredible, and often horrible, reaction from the millions who viewed it online, this is a dramatic story of twists and turns that asks the question: Can a jury ever be truly fair in the age of social media?

“In the first episode, the couple testify about their early love story before the programme advances to some of the most dramatic moments of the trial, including the famous ‘Amber t*rd’ incident and Depp’s dramatic ‘megapint’ moment, while showing the increasingly hostile reaction to Heard on TikTok and YouTube.

“In the second episode, as hostility to Amber Heard grows on social media, the trial reaches one of its most violent and disturbing moments. A violent confrontation between Depp and Heard as they visit Australia results in Depp losing part of his finger with Heard making a shocking allegation

“In the third episode, the jury hear allegations that superstar Johnny Depp kicked his former wife Amber Heard down the stairs. But Heard’s claims seem to be undermined by dramatic testimony from one of Depp’s exes – Kate Moss – to the delight of Depp’s online supporters. After hearing of a disputed claim about violence on a plane, the lawyers make their closing arguments and the jury retire to reach a verdict.”
