I am assisting the casting directors for the Netflix series "Mindhunter" to invite talent to attend an open casting call on Saturday August 6, 2016 in Moundsville, WV. All ages and types are needed including children. This series is based on the novel "Mind Hunter: Inside FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit" written by Mark Olshaker and John E. Douglas. Set in 1979, the show centers on the inquisitive and skilled FBI Agent Bill Tench. Along with fellow serial killer investigator in the behavioral science unit, FBI agent Holden Ford, Tench interviews serial killers to help them solve current murders.
Starring in "Mindhunter" is Holt McCallany as Bill Tench, and Jonathan Groff as Holden Ford. Also starring is Cotter Smith as Shepard, Unit Chief of FBI National Training Academy; and Anna Torv as Wendy, a psychologist. "Mindhunter" is executive produced by Academy Award winner Charlize Theron and two-time Academy Award nominee David Fincher. Also executive producing is Jennifer Orme Erwin, who acquired the television rights to the novel. "Mindhunter" will air on Netflix in 2017.
