MD Appeals New Trial for Adnan Syed

Nick Cave And Warren Ellis Scoring HBO's The Case Against Adnan Syed

Syed's story was widely publicized in the 2014 "Serial" podcast, which cast doubt on his guilt and inspired armchair investigators to unearth new information.

Produced by Working Title TV and Instinct Productions, The Case Against Adnan Syed will both re-examine the police investigation and address Syed's present-day situation.

Sky and HBO will produce a documentary about the Adnan Syed case made popular by the "Serial" podcast.

However, Sky say the series will uncover "ground-breaking revelations that challenge the state's case".

Now, a four-hour documentary, The Case Against Adnan Syed, will delve deeper into the subject. Adnan Syed, Min Lee's ex-boyfriend, was found guilty of her murder and convicted to life in prison the following year, at age 17.

The series, which isn't associated directly with the podcast, will further explore the 1999 murder of 18-year-old Baltimore County high school student Hae Min Lee.

On March 29, 2018 the Maryland Appellate Court upheld Judge Welch's decision that this was significant enough to grant Syed a new trial.

The programme will follow events up to the present, with Syed awaiting his new trial, and will air in the United Kingdom on Sky Atlantic and on HBO in the US. The show will also feature original music from singer-songwriter Nick Cave.

Berg has been working on "The Case Against Adnan Syed" since 2015, per the release. The series also includes "exclusive access to Adnan Syed, his family and his lawyers", as Berg "has been closely following their efforts to obtain justice, with the outcome still to be determined - and possibly shaped by the investigation pursued within the series itself".

At this point, no specific premiere date for the series has been confirmed.
