“The Kemper interviews, the Manson interviews — that stuff is pretty well documented.
“We stayed as close to that as we could while still having a dramatic arc.”
Set in the late 1970s, Mindhunter explores the early days of psychological profiling at a time where its methods were considered extremely controversial.
Holt McNally, who stars as Bill Tench, told the LA Times that the FBI was once one of the “most conservative” agencies in the world and was not interested in empathising with serial killers.

Who is in the cast of Mindhunter?
Jonathan Groff stars as Holden Ford, a special agent in the FBI’s behaviour science division and a fictionalised version of John Douglas .
The actor, who is best known for Looking and The Normal Heart, described Mindhunter as “chilling”
He told the LA Times: “One of the things that is so chilling about Mindhunter is that it humanises the serial killers, these sad, guys with damaged pasts and mental problems. It's so much scarier to look at them as human beings.”
Alongside him is Scully’s Holt McCallany, who plays grizzled veteran Bill Tench.
Meanwhile, Fringe’s Anna Torv stars as an FBI psychologist called Wendy.
