Now, a four-hour documentary, The Case Against Adnan Syed, will delve deeper into the subject.
Syed was jailed in 1999 for the murder of ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee and has been serving a life sentence ever since.
During the fall of 2014, it seemed almost impossible to go anywhere without falling into a conversation about the enthralling podcast "Serial", which debuted in October of that year to a seemingly immediate (and obsessed) audience. In March of this year, Maryland's court of special appeals granted a retrial for Syed's case.
Sky said the series will present new discoveries and "ground-breaking revelations that challenge the state's case". The Baltimore Sun reported this week that Syed's prosecutors had asked the court to reverse the retrial ruling. Berg received access to Syed, his family, friends of Syed and Lee, and members of the Baltimore law enforcement.
Metro health officials confirm E. coli case linked to lettuce
The most recent illnesses reported to the CDC started when romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizon region was still available. So, it should no longer be in stores and restaurants because of its three-week shelf life.
"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.
Instinct's Henrietta Conrad and Jemima Khan serve as executive producers alongside Working Title's Eric Fellner, Tim Bevan and Andrew Stearn. While we might miss Serial's classic theme music, Nick Cave and experimental musician Warren Ellis are locked in to collaborate on the series' almost-certainly-eerie soundscape.
Berg has been in production on the series since 2015, charting the various machinations and breakthroughs that have marked the case, including the latest twist.
