Syed was convicted and sentenced to life in prison in 2000 for Hae Min Lee's murder. His original conviction and his subsequent efforts to get a new trial have galvanized people throughout the world since they were featured in 2014 in the "Serial" podcast, which was produced by former Baltimore Sun reporter Sarah Koenig.
The Case Against Adnan Syed will reportedly both re-examine events leading up to Lee Min's disappearance and murder, and provide "ground-breaking revelations". By 2016, a Baltimore judge vacated the conviction and granted a new trial in light of new evidence challenging cell phone data that linked Syed to the crime, as well as testimony from an alibi witness. Berg received access to Syed, his family, friends of Syed and Lee, and members of the Baltimore law enforcement.
