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

Since Serial aired, the show's producers have gone on to make a second series focusing on a separate story involving the USA military and a separate single-story podcast called S-Town. By 2016, a Baltimore judge vacated the conviction and granted a new trial in light of new evidence challenging cell phone data that linked Syed to the crime, as well as testimony from an alibi witness.

The most recent legal development in Syed's battle for a new day in court occurred Monday, when prosecutors asked Maryland's highest court to reverse a ruling that would have granted Syed a new trial.

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

Syed, who has maintained his innocence, was given a life sentence for Lee's murder in 2000.

Viewers will hear accounts from Adnan Syed, the defence team, the Syed family, friends and teachers of Hae Min Lee, and members of Baltimore City law enforcement.

Working Title TV and Instinct Productions are producing and NBC Universal International Studios are distributing the follow-up to the case, which will debut on HBO in the US and on Sky Atlantic in Europe.

The series will "closely re-examine" the 1999 disappearance and murder of 18-year-old Baltimore high school student Hae Min Lee, and the subsequent conviction of Syed, her ex-boyfriend. The show will also feature original music from singer-songwriter Nick Cave. Henrietta Conrad and Jemima Khan will executive producer for Instinct Productions alongside Working Title TV's Eric Fellner, Tim Bevan, and Andrew Stearn.

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