Trailer for David Fincher’s Mindhunter on Netflix

Based on the book Mind Hunter: Inside FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit from Mark Olshaker and John E. Douglas, Mindhunter follows two FBI agents in 1979. These agents work as part of the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit to create psychological profiles of violent criminals based on interviews with currently imprisoned violent criminals, in hopes of making the catching of similar criminals easier.

This trailer gives you a taste of the task at hand, the toll it will take on these agents, and the opposition facing the two agents. The personal relationships of the two men also look to play a role in the series. With David Fincher attached both as an executive producer and a director, there’s reason to expect really good things from the series.

Netflix certainly has high hopes for the series, having already renewed Mindhunter for a second season. Here’s hoping that besides providing good TV, the series can manage an in-depth and accurate look into the process of understanding the mind of everyone involved. Crime shows tend to pile one atop another, but with Fincher involved we can hopefully count on something a little better and different than your typical procedural drama. Hopefully, along the way, we’ll get something a little different as well.

Mindhunter hits Netflix on October 13. Starring in the series are Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, Anna Torv, Hannah Gross, and Cotter Smith.
