"The day she disappeared was a normal day for me." The many years that followed certainly have not been. Here is the first full trailer of The Adnan Syed case, The HBO documentary series that develops the murder case that captivated millions of people who heard the 2014 podcast Serial. The four-part program promises "revolutionary revelations that challenge the case of the state," which resulted in a life sentence.
Sixteen years after Adnan Syed was sentenced to life imprisonment for strangling his teenage ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee in Maryland, his conviction was quashed and a new trial was granted. This decision was confirmed nearly two years later. Syed remains in prison. Now, according to HBO, "Director Amy Berg brings a fresh look to the case and offers interviews with key players, many of whom were not featured in the original podcast."
The logline: Berg revisits crime and follows the evolution of history from 2014 to today. The series presents new information that challenges the case of the state and relies on exclusive access to essential characters, including new audio recordings of imprisoned Syed, the defense team , the Syed family, Lee 's friends and teachers, private investigators and law enforcement officers in Baltimore City, examining how Syed' s trial and subsequent conviction in 2000 raised as many questions as answers.
The docus will be released on March 10 on premium cable.
