Robert Durst murder: The Jinx filmmakers Andrew Jarecki, Jason Blum celebrate conviction – The Washington Post

Both prosecutors and defense attorneys acknowledge the film was key in the conviction, even if they disagree on whether it had an undue influence. Jason Blum, executive producer of the Peabody Award-winning series, said Jarecki’s work reignited interest in a case. Dick DeGuerin, one of Durst’s attorneys, said in an email that the documentary series “was instrumental in the prosecution in California, providing a blueprint to the prosecutors.”
