A documentary series for HBO and Sky Atlantic
The fascinating unsolved crime, which was the subject of the global podcast phenomenon Serial (over 200 million downloads), is re-examined by Academy Award nominated director, Amy Berg.
This multi-episode documentary series offers a cinematic look at the 1999 murder of teenage student Hae Min Lee and subsequent conviction of her high school sweetheart, Adnan Syed.
With exclusive access to Adnan Syed, his family and his legal team, director Amy Berg (Deliver Us From Evil, West of Memphis) follows the story from the genesis of their high school relationship, to the original police investigation and trial, through to the current day, where Syed faces a re-trial after serving 18 years in jail.
The Case Against Adnan Syed was nominated for Best Crime & Investigation Documentary at the 2020 Banff World Media Festival Rockie Awards.
