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

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

The podcast Serial was inspired by a documentary reality series about a mysterious death, and now the crime covered in Serial is becoming a documentary reality series.

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

Working Title TV and Instinct Productions are producing, and NBC Universal International Studios are distributing the follow-up to the case, which will play on the Sky Atlantic channel in the United Kingdom and in the US on HBO, Reuters reported.

The docoseries is directed by Amy Berg, who was nominated for an Academy Award in 2006 for Deliver Us From Evil, an exposé sex abuse claims against the Catholic church.

Their latest project, as Slate reports, is The Case Against Adnan Syed, a new documentary exploring the same crime investigated in the first season of the massively popular true-crime podcast Serial. In March of this year, Maryland's court of special appeals granted a retrial for Syed's case. In 2015, production started on a television adaptation of the podcast based on new evidence the podcast uncovered. Syed has always said he is innocent and, since his story garnered wider attention, he has been granted a new trial.

In the 10th, he found the highlight-finish following a clean eight-punch flurry with a viciously placed hook to the body. He was stopped in the 11th round by Antonio DeMarco in a fight for a vacant lightweight title in 2011 at Staples Center.


The series will have a soundtrack by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.

"We'll be offering viewers a compelling window into one of the most talked about murder cases in recent years", Sky director of programming Zai Bennett told Variety of the series.

Adnan Syed is about to be tried - again - in the court of public opinion.

'The hugely talented Amy Berg has unprecedented access to those closest to the investigation, which is sure to make unmissable viewing'.

At this point, no specific premiere date for the series has been confirmed.
