Adnan Syed - the subject of the celebrated Serial podcast - will find himself under scrutiny once more with a newly announced HBO docuseries, The Case Against Adnan Syed. In March of this year, Maryland's court of special appeals granted a retrial for Syed's case.

The impact of the podcast "Serial" continues to be felt.

In June 2016, a Baltimore Circuit Court Judge vacated Syed's conviction and granted him a new trial after new evidence challenged the reliability of cell phone data linking Syed to the crime scene, and a long-awaited alibi witness took the stand.

The series has been in production since 2015 and will re-examine the events leading up to the victim's disappearance, the original police investigation, and the present day, as Syed awaits a new trial.

Directed by Oscar-nominated documentarian Amy Berg ("Deliver Us From Evil"), the four-hour series is titled "The Case Against Adnan Syed".

The Case Against Adnan Syed will air on Sky in the United Kingdom and HBO in the US.

The series is said to present "new discoveries as well as ground-breaking revelations that challenge the state's case" and features exclusive access to Syed, the defence team, the Syed family, friends and teachers of Hae Min Lee and Adnan Syed, and members of Baltimore City law enforcement.

Serial followed the ins and outs of Lee's murder (The Nisha Call!) and Syed's subsequent trial (Christina Gutierrez!).

Adnan Syed was convicted in 2000 of killing Hae Min Lee, his high-school sweetheart.

It's also been revealed that Nick Cave will provide original music for the upcoming project. Now the series is getting a small screen followup, thanks to HBO and Sky. "The hugely talented Amy Berg has unprecedented access to those closest to the investigation, which is sure to make unmissable viewing".
