Netflix picks up ‘Mindhunter’
Netflix has picked up “Mindhunter”, a 2nd drama series from “House of Cards” creator David Fincher.
It’s based on the 1996 book “Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit” by John Douglas & Mark Olshanker.
Douglas spent decades developing criminal-profiling techniques for the FBI and teamed with writer
Olshanker for the story of his 25-year career tracking down serial killers.
Fincher is set to direct the TV drama as well as executive produce, alongside business partner Charlize Theron. It’s unclear at this point if the actress will also star in the series as no casting has yet been announced.
