HBO, Sky team on Amy Berg's "The Case Against Adnan Syed"

HBO, Sky team on Amy Berg's

The case against Adnan Syed, made famous by the podcast Serial, will get another re-examination in a four-hour documentary series on HBO, the network announced Wednesday (May 16).

A lower-court judge vacated Syed's conviction in 2016.

Syed was convicted of murdering his high school girlfriend Hae Min Lee in 1999; the podcast examined evidence and, as its executive producer Julie Snyder told NPR, showed that "the story that the state presented at trial could not have happened". The Baltimore Sun reported this week that Syed's prosecutors had asked the court to reverse the retrial ruling.

The four-hour doc, directed by the Oscar-nominated Amy Berg, is set to debut on HBO in the U.S. and on Sky Atlantic in the UK.

The Case Against Adnan Syed will investigate the 1999 disappearance and killing of Hae Min Lee, 18, in Baltimore County and the eventual conviction of her boyfriend, Syed, of multiple crimes, including first-degree murder and kidnapping.

The Case Against Adnan Syed will reportedly both re-examine events leading up to Lee Min's disappearance and murder, and provide "ground-breaking revelations". It will be exec-produced by Henrietta Conrad and Jemima Khan for Instinct Productions and Eric Fellner, Tim Bevan and Andrew Stearn for Working Title TV. While we might miss Serial's classic theme music, Nick Cave and experimental musician Warren Ellis are locked in to collaborate on the series' almost-certainly-eerie soundscape.

'The hugely talented Amy Berg has unprecedented access to those closest to the investigation, which is sure to make unmissable viewing'.

Director of Programming, Sky Entertainment UK & Ireland, Zai Bennett said, "We're excited to partner with our friends at HBO to bring this fascinating and gripping case to television screens worldwide".
