HBO is teaming with the UK's Sky Atlantic to release a documentary series following the murder case and conviction of Adnan Syed, the subject of the first season of the popular podcast "Serial" from 2014.

A lower-court judge vacated Syed's conviction in 2016.

Syed has maintained his innocence, and his case attracted global attention in 2014 when it was featured on "Serial".

Produced by Working Title TV and Instinct Productions, the project will re-examine Lee's disappearance and murder, the original police investigation, and the present day while Syed, 36, awaits a new trial.

The four-hour doc, directed by the Oscar-nominated Amy Berg, is set to debut on HBO in the U.S. and on Sky Atlantic in the UK.
