A gripping documentary series about Adnan Syed's infamous case is being made

Amy Berg's The Case Against Adnan Syed Doc Series Coming to HBO

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

In June 2016, a Baltimore Circuit Court Judge vacated Syed's conviction and granted him a new trial after new evidence challenged the reliability of cell phone data linking Syed to the crime scene, and a long-awaited alibi witness took the stand.

Podcasters became obsessed with the case of Adnan Syed through Serial, which investigated the disappearance of 18-year-old Baltimore County high school student Hae Min Lee. No release date has been set but it will air on Sky Atlantic in the United Kingdom and HBO in the U.S. The series will re-examine the events that led up to Lee's 1999 murder and Sky says the series will present "ground-breaking revelations that challenge the state's case".

"The series traces how the rush to justice and Syed's conviction in 2000 raised more questions than answers about what happened to Hae Min Lee, underscoring the instability of memory and conflicting eyewitnesses", the HBO release said. The Baltimore Sun reported this week that Syed's prosecutors had asked the court to reverse the retrial ruling.

HBO and Sky Atlantic are making a documentary series that will "closely re-examine" the murder case of Adnan Syed, the subject of the popular podcast "Serial".

GOP Governor of Maryland Bans 'Ex-Gay' Therapy for Youth
Supporters of the ban note the therapy is widely discredited by medical and mental health associations. Simonaire said when she finally told her parents, they sought conversion therapy providers for her.

Serial Season 1 told Adnan Syed's story and the curious, potentially unfair trial he received.

The documentary, which has reportedly been in production since 2015, doesn't have a premiere date yet.

The series will also include original music by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.

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