Nick Cave And Warren Ellis Scoring HBO's The Case Against Adnan Syed

Adnan Syed

Syed was convicted and sentenced to life in prison in 2000 for Hae Min Lee's murder.

HBO have announced a new documentary series titled The Case Against Adnan Syed, which will cover the case popularised by the Serial podcast.

Berg has been in production on The Case Against Adnan Syed since 2015 and the series will offer "new discoveries, as well as groundbreaking revelations that challenge the state's case".

Welch vacated Adnan Syed's conviction and granted him a new trial after new evidence challenged the reliability of the cell phone data that linked Syed to the crime scene, and a long-awaited alibi witness finally had her day in court. The State of Maryland appealed the court's ruling, but the Court of Special Appeals also ruled in favor of a retrial in 2018.

If you're unfamiliar with the case, the series will explore the 1999 disappearance and murder of 18-year-old student Hae Min Lee, and the conviction of her ex-boyfriend Adnan Syed. His original conviction and his subsequent efforts to get a new trial have galvanized people throughout the world since they were featured in 2014 in the "Serial" podcast, which was produced by former Baltimore Sun reporter Sarah Koenig.

There have also been a few surprises along the way, most notably Scott McTominay's involvement. We know it will be a hard game, but the best team is going to win it at the end of the day.

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

Director of Programming, Sky Entertainment UK & Ireland, Zai Bennett said, "We're excited to partner with our friends at HBO to bring this fascinating and gripping case to television screens worldwide".

As for the soundtrack, it will be helmed by the busybody scoring duo of Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.

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