HBO producing documentary series on Adnan Syed, 'Serial' case

Share

Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Amy Berg is directing the four-hour documentary series, and Nick Cave and Warren Ellis are writing an original score.

Like Serial, the series will follow the disappearance and murder of 18-year-old Baltimore County high school student Hae Min Lee in 1999, and Syed's subsequent trial and conviction.

European satcaster Sky and premium U.S. cablenet HBO have commissioned a four-part documentary series about the murder case featured in the first season of hit podcast Serial. To this day, Syed maintains his innocence and in wake of the new evidence and interest provided from Serial, he now awaits a retrial.

Sky said the series will present new discoveries and "ground-breaking revelations that challenge the state's case".

Sky, Europe's largest pay TV operator, and HBO have a $250 million co-production deal and are working together on various projects.

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

"We'll be offering viewers a compelling window into one of the most talked about murder cases in recent years", said Sky's director of programming Zai Bennett. According to a press release, producer Amy Berg has been given unprecedented access to those closest to the case - including Syed's family and friends, defence team, and members of the Baltimore City law enforcement.

HBO makes an interesting claim: that "the outcome" of Adnan's case will "possibly [be] shaped by the investigation pursued within the series itself".

Adnan Syed is about to be tried - again - in the court of public opinion.
