TV- HBO and Sky are collaborating on a documentary titled ‘The Case against Adnan Syed’, based on the 1999 murder of Korean-American high school student Hae Min Lee and the subsequent conviction of her former boyfriend Adnan Syed.

Syed was convicted in 2000 and has since been in prison. He insists he is innocent.

Produced by Jemima Khan’s Instinct Productions and Working Title TV, the four part documentary series will be directed by Amy Berg. 

“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 revealed in a statement.

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