HBO is giving all non-subscribers quite a treat by making the first chapter of their new documentary series, “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst,” available to stream for free on YouTube. The episode can be viewed in its entirety below and will be available through Wednesday, March 4.
“The Jinx” hails from acclaimed filmmakers Andrew Jarecki and Mark Smerling (“Capturing the Friedmans”) and explores the tumultuous life of the reclusive Robert Durst, the offspring of New York’s billionaire real estate family who has been accused of three murders over the past 30 years. Durst has never been convicted, nor has he ever spoken publicly until now. Made with the cooperation of Durst himself, the groundbreaking six-part series uncovers the long-buried information the filmmakers discovered during their seven-year investigation.
Watch Chapter One below and catch all new episodes of “The Jinx” every Sunday at 8pm through March 15.
