Adnan Syed Adnan Syed, the subject of the Serial podcast and the new HBO/Sky four-part documentary THE CASE AGAINST ADNAN SYED.

HBO today announced that it and the Sky network in Europe are producing a four-part documentary on Adnan Syed, the man whose murder trial became a near-household name thanks to the Serial podcast.

THE CASE AGAINST ADNAN SYED "will explore the 1999 disappearance and murder of 18-year-old Baltimore County high school student Hae Min Lee, and the subsequent conviction of her ex-boyfriend ." Syed's conviction was vacated in 2016 and affirmed by an appellate court in 2018. He's currently awaiting retrial.

From HBO:

In production since 2015, THE CASE AGAINST ADNAN SYED closely re-examines the events leading up to Hae Min Lee's disappearance, from high school romance, forbidden love and cultural conflict, to the aftermath of her disappearance, the original police investigation and the present day, when Syed awaits a new trial. Presenting 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, 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.

No air date was announced.
