“Mindhunter”, a Netflix detective series, is based on the book “Mind Hunter: Inside FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit” by Mark Olshaker and John E. Douglas. It stars Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallant as FBI agents who must delve in the psyches of serial killers in order to solve pending investigations. “Mindhunter” will dive deep into what’s in the minds of the world’s most dangerous serial killers, while referencing real-life cases like Charles Manson (an American criminal and former cult leader) and the Son of Sam (an American serial killer who was convicted of 8 separate shooting attacks that began in New York City during the summer of 1976).

David Fincher will direct a number of the episodes, as well as Asif Kapadia, Tobias Lindholm and Andrew Douglas. Executive producers include Fincher, Joshua Donen, Charlize Theron and Cean Chaffin.

“Mindhunter” is slated to premiere on Netflix come 13th October 2017.
