Plot Synopsis

Directed and produced by Andrew Jarecki and produced and shot by Marc Smerling, this six-part documentary series tracks the strange history of Robert Durst, scion of New York's billionaire real estate family, who has been accused of three murders over the past 30 years, but never convicted. Long suspected in the 1982 disappearance of his beautiful young wife in New York, the 2000 murder of the key witness in the case in Beverly Hills, and the subsequent murder and dismemberment of a neighbor in Galveston, TX, Durst has consistently maintained his innocence, and remains a free man today. THE JINX tracks Durst's history against the backdrop of unimaginable wealth and privilege, the filmmaker's seven-year investigation, and the extraordinary relationship that evolves between filmmaker and suspect, ultimately revealing secrets that have baffled authorities for years. While making the series, Jarecki unearthed thousands of pages of hidden documents, police files, key witnesses, never-before-seen footage and private prison recordings.
