Directed and produced by Andrew Jarecki and produced and shot by Marc Smerling (the Oscar nominees behindCapturing the Friedmans), The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst tracks Durst’s strange history against the backdrop of unimaginable wealth and privilege, exposes long-buried information discovered during their seven-year investigation of a series of unsolved crimes, and was made with the cooperation of the man suspected of being at its centre.                                                       

Premiering over three consecutive nights from 1 to 3 April at 10pm (9pm Thai.Jkt) on HBO SIGNATURE and on HBO GO, this groundbreaking six-part HBO documentary series will also be released on HBO On Demand from 6 April.

“We simply cannot say enough about the brilliant job that Andrew Jarecki and Marc Smerling did in producingThe Jinx. Years in the making, their thorough research and dogged reporting reignited interest in Robert Durst’s story with the public and law enforcement,” said HBO in a statement.

Long suspected in the notorious 1982 disappearance of his beautiful young wife, Kathie, in New York, Durst continued to raise suspicion with the unsolved 2000 murder of Susan Berman (his confidante, thought to be a key witness in the investigation into the case of Durst’s missing wife) in Beverly Hills, as well as the subsequent murder and dismemberment of neighbor Morris Black in Galveston, Texas. Durst has consistently maintained his innocence, and remained a free man.

During exclusive interviews with Jarecki that were initiated by Durst himself, he talks with startling candor, revealing secrets of a case that has baffled authorities for three decades.
