Sky and HBO to make documentary about Serial subject Adnan Syed

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis

HBO and Sky announced Wednesday that a four-hour docuseries called "The Case Against Adnan Syed" is on the way.

"The Case Against Adnan Syed will offer a cinematic look at the life and 1999 murder of Hae Min Lee and conviction of Adnan Syed", explained HBO in a press release.

Produced by Working Title TV and Instinct Productions, the project will re-examine Lee's disappearance and murder, the original police investigation, and the present day while Syed, 36, awaits a new trial.

The impact of the podcast "Serial" continues to be felt.

However, work has continued in Syed's pursuit of a new trial, and he has continued to protest his innocence throughout the last two decades.

The Serial podcast left an open-ended finale in December 2014 and was followed-up by another podcast, which led to a book titled "Adnan's Story" by Adnan Syed's family friend, Rabia Chaudry, who is an attorney and US Institute of Peace senior fellow.

Since the airing of Serial, Syed's conviction has been vacated, and he was granted a new trial.

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

Titled The Case Against Adnan Syed, the documentary, much like the podcast, explores the events prior to Hae Min Lee's disappearance.

The State of Maryland appealed the lower court judge's ruling, but on March 29, 2018, the Court of Special Appeals also ruled to vacate Syed's conviction and grant him the retrial he has been waiting for.

The series will have a soundtrack by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.

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