HBO producing doc series on Adnan Syed
Adnan Syed is about to be tried — again — in the court of public opinion. HBO is co-producing a four-hour documentary series, “The Case Against Adnan Syed,” which will revisit the 1999 murder of Baltimore high school student Hae Min Lee. The series will be directed by Amy Berg. His original conviction and his subsequent efforts to get a new trial have galvanized people since they were featured in 2014 in the “Serial” podcast, which was produced by former The Baltimore Sun reporter Sarah Koenig.
