Lifetime Plans A Robert Durst Telemovie

Despite HBO’s “The Jinx” series effectively covering the story, Lifetime is moving forward with development of a telemovie about Robert Durst.

The story would reportedly be told through the eyes and relationship of Durst’s late wife, Kathie Durst, who disappeared in 1982 and became the first suspected victim to be killed by the troubled real estate heir.

Lifetime has optioned Matt Birkbeck’s book “A Deadly Secret” which will serve as source material for the script by Bettina Gilois (“Bessie”). Linda Berman is producing.
