“How do we get ahead of crazy if we don’t know how crazy thinks?”
The official synopsis for Mindhunter (courtesy of IMDb):
An agent in the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit tracks down serial killers and rapists.
Netflix have finally shared the trailer for David Fincher’s upcoming new series. The guy needs no introduction. His famed work includes Fight Club, Seven, The Social Network, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button. This will be the second Netflix series with David Fincher as a producer. Fincher is a producer for House of Cards (2013).
Fincher has worked in this realm before as the director of the acclaimed 2007 film Zodiac, based on the notorious Zodiac Killer who terrorized the San Francisco Bay Area during the late 1960s and early 1970s. So, expect nothing less than perfection.
The new TV series is set to follow the exploits of criminal investigator Agent Ford (Jonathan Groff) and his colleague (Holt McCallany) as they interrogate serial killers, before relaying their findings to police. It’s based on a 1997 novel of the same name by John Douglas, which was itself the inspiration for Agent Crawford in the horror classic The Silence Of The Lambs.
“It’s not easy butchering people – it’s hard work.”
Executive produced by David Fincher and Charlize Theron, Netflix’s upcoming true-crime drama Mindhunter is based on Douglas’ book with Mark Olshaker, Mind Hunter: Inside The FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit.
Mindhunter is set to launch on the streaming service on October 13.
