All in the Mind

April 21, 2020


For two seasons, Netflix crime drama Mindhunter followed the investigators studying the damaged psyches of serial killers in an attempt to understand them and catch them, paving the way for the development of modern serial killer profiling.

Set in the 1970s, the show centres on FBI agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) as they apply their groundbreaking behavioural analysis to hunting some of the most dangerous people in the US.

In this DQTV interview, McCallany discusses his character and the relationship Tench has with his partner Ford, describing them as more than partners but less than friends.

He also talks about what makes the show special: “visionary filmmaker” David Fincher’s role as director and executive producer, and the show’s source material – Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit by John Douglas and Mark Olshaker.

McCallany also speaks about the show’s ambition to be as authentic as possible, believing that this makes Mindhunter stand apart from other series in the crime genre.

Mindhunter is produced by Denver and Delilah Productions and Fox 21 for Netflix.
