HBO RELEASES NEW "THE CASE AGAINST ADNAN SYED" TRAILER
FOUR-PART DOCUMENTARY SERIES DIRECTED BY AMY BERG,
DEBUTS SUNDAY, MARCH 10, EXCLUSIVELY ON HBO
February 20, 2019 - Today HBO released a new trailer for THE CASE AGAINST ADNAN SYED. A four-part documentary series, THE CASE AGAINST ADNAN SYED debuts SUNDAY, MARCH 10 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.
The 1999 murder of 18-year-old Baltimore County high school student Hae Min Lee, and the subsequent conviction of her ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, were brought to global attention in 2014 by the hugely popular "Serial" podcast. But there is more to the story.
Director Amy Berg Berg ("West of Memphis," the Oscar(R)-nominated "Deliver Us from Evil"), brings a fresh eye to the case and offers interviews with key players, many of whom were not featured in the original podcast. Bringing the story to life visually, she revisits the crime and follows unfolding developments from 2014 to today. The series presents new information that questions the state's case, and draws on exclusive access to essential characters, including new audio recordings of Syed from prison, the defense team, the Syed family, friends and teachers of Hae Min Lee, private investigators and members of Baltimore City law enforcement, examining how Syed's trial and subsequent conviction in 2000 raised as many questions as they answered.
