CraveTV taps into pop culture's revived obsession with true-crime stories with one of television’s most mesmerizing and successful documentary series, THE JINX: THE LIFE AND DEATHS OF ROBERT DURST. Still making headlines around the world, and just days after Durst’s guilty plea to gun charges, clearing the way for his extradition to LA where he will face a murder trial, the six-part HBO documentary tells the story of some of the most notorious mysteries in New York’s history. The documentary that the Associated Press called “made for the binge watcher” exposes the life of reclusive Robert Durst, the man at the very centre of these crimes with his never-before-heard point of view. Described as “…one of the most shocking moments in TV history,” by Toronto Star, THE JINX: THE LIFE AND DEATHS OF ROBERT DURST, is now streaming exclusively on CraveTV. Directed by Andrew Jarecki (Capturing the Friedmans) and winner of two Emmy® awards in 2015 including Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series, the documentary series went from the entertainment pages to making front page news headlines when Durst was arrested the day before the final episode premiered. THE JINX: THE LIFE AND DEATHS OF ROBERT DURST – (HBO Collection) THE JINX: THE LIFE AND DEATHS OF ROBERT DURST tells the story of some of the most notorious unsolved murder mysteries in New York’s history, and pulls back the covers on the life of reclusive Robert Durst, the man at the very centre of these crimes with his never before heard perspective and point of view. Brilliant, reclusive, and the subject of relentless media scrutiny, Durst has never spoken publicly, until now. During exclusive interviews with Jarecki, Durst candidly reveals secrets of a case that has baffled authorities for 30 years. Long suspected in three crimes – the 1982 disappearance of his young wife in New York, the 2000 murder of the key witness in Beverly Hills, and the subsequent murder and dismemberment of a neighbour in Galveston, Texas – Durst has consistently maintained his innocence, and remains a free man today. Jarecki develops a relationship with Durst, unearthing thousands of pages of hidden documents, police files, key witnesses, never-before-seen footage, and private prison recordings. Directed by Andrew Jarecki, produced by Marc Smerling and Andrew Jarecki (Capturing the Friedmans), co-produced and edited by Zac Stuart-Pontier (Catfish), and executive produced by Jason Blum of Blumhouse (HBO’s THE NORMAL HEART).
