David Fincher (Fight Club, Se7en, House of Cards…and many others) is back on Netflix with an original series called Mindhunter where he takes us all into the most twisted and tortured minds of criminals. Judging from the blood spattered and gripping new trailer, it is going to be quite the ride! He is doing both directing duties and collaborating with Charlize Theron in the executive producing chairs.
Written by playwright Joe Penhall and Dexter showrunner Scott Buck, Mindhunter is based on the 1996 book Mind Hunter: Inside The FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit, by former special agent John Douglas and Mark Olshaker.
The series is set in 1979 and follows the inquisitive and skilled FBI Agent Bill Tench (Holt McCallany). Along with fellow serial killer investigator in the behavioral science unit, FBI agent Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff), Tench interviews serial killers to help them solve current murders.
Starring Johnathan Groff, Holt McCallany, Anna Torv and Hannah Gross. This grizzly new series has the look and feel of Se7en, but with modern edge to it.
Check out the trailer and judge for yourself, but I know that I, for one, will not be missing an episode.
