Directed by Academy Award nominee Amy Berg, the series will feature interviews with Adnan, Adnan’s defence team, the Syed family, teachers of Hae Min Lee and controversial figure Jay Wilds, who testified against Adnan in the murder trial.
The documentary series will also cover what has happened in the last half-decade since Serial was first released in 2014.
The first episode of the series, which focuses on Syed’s family, will premiere tonight on SBS at 8.30pm. It’s also available on SBS On Demand.
In 2000, Adnan was found guilty of first degree murder, kidnapping and robbery. He was sentenced to life in prison plus 30 years.
Ever since his conviction, he has maintained his innocence – and following on from the success of Serial, thousands of supporters agree.
