The TV show about Serial's Adnan Syed is coming soon


A TV show based on the podcast juggernaut Serial will soon be hitting our screens.

The 2014 podcast - which has now been downloaded more than 130 million times - told the story of Adnan Syed who was imprisoned for the murder of his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee in 1999.

The series raised questions about some of the evidence and how Adnan's trial lawyer, who is now dead, argued his case.

In the series, host Sarah Koenig frequently talks to Adnan on the phone in prison and interviews other students from his school, his family and lawyers.

Adnan Sayed: Innocent or Guilty? will air on Investigation Discovery at 9pm on June 15 and will explore what has happened to Adnan since the end of the Serial podcast in 2015.

Since the podcast finished, Adnan has been granted an appeal based on the grounds that he was provided ineffective counsel during his original trial.

The programme will also give insight into the potential for an alibi given by classmate Asia McClain to be submitted for evidence.
