We start with a look at Robert Durst’s shocking turn on HBO’s The Jinx last night. Did it amount to a murder confession? Also, when do documentary filmmakers have a moral obligation to share information with law enforcement? Then, in our weekly television roundup, an update from the South by Southwest festival in Austin this week, where new shows are premiering. Next, writer and comedian Issa Rae talks about being “black and awkward” and how she turned that into a brand. And finally, why are the number of deaths by accidental drug overdose increasing among older Americans?

Durst agreed on March 16, 2015 to be extradited to Los Angeles County from New Orleans to face a charge of first-degree murder in the 2000 death of a longtime friend. Durst, who is the subject of a six-part HBO documentary series called The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst, has maintained his innocence. The 71-year-old was arrested on Saturday in New Orleans. The warrant issued by Los Angeles County is for the death of Susan Berman, whose body was discovered in her West Los Angeles home on Christmas Eve in 2000, authorities said.
