If you were hooked on the first season of the podcast Serial, examine all the evidence afresh in this riveting documentary. Eighteen years after he was sentenced to life plus 30 years in jail, this true-crime investigation takes a fresh look into the case against Adnan Syed, who was convicted of the 1999 murder of his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee.
The four-part HBO docuseries from Oscar, Emmy and Bafta-nominated director Amy Berg (Deliver Us from Evil) follows on the success of Serial, which brought international attention to the trial and to Syed’s continued insistence that he did not kill Hae.
“As testament to a tragedy, Berg’s documentary was wrenching. As a quiet indictment of true crime and its ghastly razzmatazz, it was devastating,” says the UK’s Daily Telegraph.
This documentary was nominated for a 2019 Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Nonfiction Program, and scored an 82% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
