Joe Penhall created the series, with David Fincher, Joshua Donen, Charlize Theron, and Cean Chaffin executive producing. Fincher also directed four episodes of the 10-episode first season, and McCallany mentioned to EW in an interview that Penhall left the project. “David took control over the arc of the story, everything has changed considerably from the original scripts that were turned by a talented British writer named Joe Penhall but who is no longer with the project,” the actor said.
The series is based on John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker’s true-crime book Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit. The first season of Mindhunter is now streaming on Netflix.
