A New Adnan Syed Documentary Series Promises New Discoveries in the Serial Case
In 2014, journalist Sarah Koenig’s investigation into the 1999 murder of Hae Min Lee inspired national interest in the 15-year-old murder case. Lee’s schoolmate Adnan Syed was convicted for the alleged murder of the girl, but new evidence brought up in Koenig’s podcast Serial, has led to the man’s retrial, which was upheld in March of this year.
Now, a new HBO docuseries from Academy Award nominated director Amy Berg (Deliver Us from Evil, West of Memphis) promises “new discoveries, as well as groundbreaking revelations that challenge the state’s case, and featuring exclusive access to Syed, the defense team, the Syed family, friends and teachers of Hae Min Lee and Adnan Syed, and members of City of Baltimore law enforcement,” according to a press release.
The series covers the days leading up to Lee’s disappearance and through present day as Syed preps for the retrial, which the release teases is “possibly shaped by the investigation pursued within the series itself.”
HBO has not yet announced a release date for the four hour documentary series, which also includes original music by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.
