With it’s exceptionally deep pocket, Netflix is coming up with a lot of interesting programming, partly by hiring some of the best people around and giving them more freedom than they’d normally receive. Hopefully that’s going to continue with Mindhunter, which is directed and produced by Fight Club and Social Network’s David Fincher.
It certainly doesn’t hurt either that Jonathan Groff (Frozen, Looking) is starring.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘How do we get ahead of crazy if we don’t know how crazy thinks? Two FBI agents (Jonathan Groff & Holt McCallany) set out on a sinister investigative odyssey to discover the brutal answers.
‘The series is directed by David Fincher (Gone Girl, Zodiac), Asif Kapadia (Amy, Senna), Tobias Lindholm (A War, A Hijacking) and Andrew Douglas (The Amityville Horror, U Want Me 2 Kill Him?). Fincher, Joshua Donen (Gone Girl, The Quick and the Dead), Charlize Theron (Girlboss, Hatfields & McCoys) and Cean Chaffin (Gone Girl, Fight Club) are Executive Producers.’
The first season will debut on Netflix on October 13th, 2017.
