Plot Synopsis

THE PRICE OF FAME is a one-hour documentary series that gives viewers an intimate perspective from the celebrity's family members and friends, in addition to entertainment journalists who covered the rise and fall -- and sometimes rise again -- of celebrities. The road to stardom is often paved with amazing and devastating public and private events. Whether it's turbulent family drama, harrowing substance abuse, outlandish spending habits or a combination of those and more, these celebrities all paid a hefty price for their fame. Each 60-minute episode focuses on the heartfelt story of a different celebrity. The series opener chronicles the life of Johnny Depp, whose life as A-list superstar doesn't come easy -- and Johnny Depp has learned this lesson the hard way. Known for his portrayal of eccentric characters in films such as ED WOOD, SLEEPY HOLLOW, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, and EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, Depp's success has also been met with harsh criticism. His famously lavish spending and $30,000 a month wine habit have left him nearly broke. Although adored by millions of fans worldwide, Depp's drunken moments of rage have also been well-documented and he is now attempting to reboot his life and career for the better. Subsequent episodes feature Shania Twain, Carrie Fisher, Patrick Swayze, Prince and Robin Williams.
