The Jinx is now available to watch online in the UK through Sky On Demand – or on NOW TV.
The six-part documentary, directed and produced by Andrew Jarecki and produced and shot by Marc Smerling, exposes long-buried information discovered during a seven-year investigation of a series of unsolved crimes, and the man at their centre: Robert Durst, scion of New York’s billionaire Durst family.
Long suspected in the 1982 disappearance of his 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 neighbour in Texas, Durst has consistently maintained his innocence. (The programme was made with his full co-operation.)
The HBO show follows Jarecki, as he develops a relationship with Durst, unearthing thousands of pages of hidden documents, police files, never-before-seen footage and private prison recordings.
Gripping, shocking and intriguing, the show is the perfect antidote to people needing a true crime fix after listening to Serial or watching Netflix’s Making a Murderer. Don’t have Sky? You can also stream it on NOW TV.
The VOD service allows you to stream Sky’s pay TV channels live and on-demand, from Sky 1 and Sky Atlantic to FOX UK and ITV Encore. The service costs £6.99 a month .
