Serial, from This American Life producer Sarah Koenig, painstakingly explored the 1999 murder of Hae Min Lee, for which Syed was convicted and given a life sentence. The 12-part series ended with (spoiler alert) Koenig stating that she still wasn't sure if Syed had committed the crime, but based on the facts, would have voted to acquit if she'd been on the jury.
Undisclosed: The State v. Adnan Syed will "examine and explore the case in greater detail, from an investigatory perspective instead of a narrative one," says an announcement on the podcast's website.
Undisclosed will likely be way more one-sided than Serial. It's hosted by Rabia Chaudry, the lawyer and family friend who first contacted Koenig about her belief in Syed's innocence, and who appears on the first episode of Serial, Vulture reports.
It's also paid for by the Adnan Syed Legal Trust, a group of supporters responsible for a defense fund that has raised $93,000, according to The Wrap. The producers of Serial are not involved in Undisclosed.
In February, Syed was granted a request to reopen his appeal on the grounds his lawyer provided inadequate representation in his original trial.
