Fincher and Charlize Theron's Netflix 'Mindhunter' Gets First October Tease

Netflix premiered the trailer at an event in Berlin on Wednesday.

Netflix have debuted a first look at their new David Fincher-produced TV series Mindhuster.

Mindhunter is based on the book Mindhunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit, cowritten by former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent John E. Douglas, who served as the basis for the character Jack Crawford from the Hannibal Lecter-verse.

The clip, released Wednesday, features glimpses at series leads Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany as two Federal Bureau of Investigation agents in 1979 who interview incarcerated serial killers in order to solve new cases. Douglas's techniques of studying high-profile serial killers, rapists and other criminals inspired fictional characters such as Will Graham, the haunted hero of "Silence of the Lambs" and "Hannibal". Likewise, the teaser trailer for Mindhunter, set in 1979, centers on the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit. Indeed, the series seems to be embodied by its own quote stating, "You want truffles, you gotta get in the dirt with the pigs". He's also stepped behind the camera for Mindhunter as a director for 3 episodes, working off scripts by John Douglas and Joe Penhall.

It's been some time since we've had any updates on the David Fincher-Charlize Theron Netflix investigative drama Mindhunter, but all that changes today.
