The series is described as "a cinematic look" at the case that "Serial" Season 1 made prominent - the 1999 murder of 18-year-old Hae Min Lee in Baltimore, Maryland, and her ex-boyfriend Syed's conviction.
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".
Since the airing of Serial, Syed's conviction has been vacated, and he was granted a new trial.More news: California Leaders Opposed to Sanctuary Law Meet with Trump
The Case of Adnan Syed will re-examine the events leading up to Lee's disappearance, its aftermath, and the present day.
The State of Maryland appealed the lower court judge's ruling, but on March 29, 2018, the Court of Special Appeals also ruled to vacate Syed's conviction and grant him the retrial he has been waiting for. According to a press release, producer Amy Berg has been given unprecedented access to those closest to the case - including Syed's family and friends, defence team, and members of the Baltimore City law enforcement.
Convicted in 2000, Syed was sentenced to life in prison for killing Lee, his former girlfriend, whose body was found in Leakin Park.More news: Facebook Introduces Voice Posts And More For Stories
Nick Cave will be scoring original music for the series.
HBO makes an interesting claim: that "the outcome" of Adnan's case will "possibly [be] shaped by the investigation pursued within the series itself".
At this point, no specific premiere date for the series has been confirmed.More news: Statoil Officially Changes Name To Equinor
