Their latest project, as Slate reports, is The Case Against Adnan Syed, a new documentary exploring the same crime investigated in the first season of the massively popular true-crime podcast Serial.

During the fall of 2014, it seemed almost impossible to go anywhere without falling into a conversation about the enthralling podcast "Serial", which debuted in October of that year to a seemingly immediate (and obsessed) audience. It also renewed interest in the Hae Min Lee murder case and was even partially responsible for Syed being granted a new trial.

The Case of Adnan Syed will attempt to trace "how the rush to justice and Syed's conviction in 2000 raised more questions than answers about what happened to Hae Min Lee, underscoring the instability of memory and conflicting eyewitnesses".

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

Viewers will hear accounts from Adnan Syed, the defence team, the Syed family, friends and teachers of Hae Min Lee, and members of Baltimore City law enforcement.

A spokesman at Spirit Airlines told CBS11, Spirit has been advised of this matter and will cooperate fully with law enforcement. Authorities say beginning in 2016 the group used their positions to bypass security and place the meth on flights.

The docuseries, like "Serial" before it, will reexamine the evidence that led to Syed's conviction as well as "groundbreaking revelations that challenge the state's case", according to a press release.

Working Title TV and Instinct Productions are producing and NBC Universal International Studios are distributing the follow-up to the case, which will debut on HBO in the USA and on Sky Atlantic in Europe.

As for the soundtrack, it will be helmed by the busybody scoring duo of Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.

The documentary, which has reportedly been in production since 2015, doesn't have a premiere date yet.

'The hugely talented Amy Berg has unprecedented access to those closest to the investigation, which is sure to make unmissable viewing'.
