Johnny Depp’s Lawyer Camille Vasquez to Appear in Discovery+ Series


Johnny Depp’s lawyers Camille Vasquez and Benjamin G. Chew will both appear in doc series ‘Johnny vs. Amber’ for Discovery+ and will be seen giving extensive testimony and interviews.

Discovery+ U.K. has secured two of the biggest high-profile legal experts engaged in the Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard defamatory trial for its upcoming doc-series about the former married couple’s court fights.

Clare Laycock, executive vice president of planning and insights and head of Entertainment at Warner Bros. Discovery UK stated.

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.

The two-part documentary series, which was unveiled later that month by Discovery+ U.K., is a follow-up to the first Johnny vs. Amber, which followed Depp’s 2020 defamation trial in the U.K. High Court. However, t his time, the spotlight will be on Heard’s recent defamation trial in Fairfax County, Virginia, which culminated in a $10 million compensation and $5 million punitive penalties verdict to Depp.

Each episode will offer one side of the debate through legal teams including Camille Vasquez, friends, family, and crucial witnesses, based on detailed evidence and testimonials from both parties.
