*Adnan Syed will be the subject of a new four-hour docu-series on HBO. HBO claims to have new evidence on the case.
Syed was convicted of murdering his girlfriend, Hae Min Lee, in 1999. The NPR podcast Serial made his case famous and cast doubt on his conviction.
He has been granted a new trial, but the prosecution has filed a motion to prevent it.
