Netflix is no stranger to great true crime related shows; be that documentary style or scripted originals. With it’s newest original show, Mindhunter, they have another hit on their hands. If you’re like me, then you won’t be able to stop watching until you’ve binged the entire thing in a day. It’s really that good. The only drawback to the binge? That empty feeling you have when you realize that it’s over, and you have to wait months for new episodes-or like me, you can re-watch it.
Mindhunter is based on the book by by FBI Profiler extraordinaire, John Douglas. The show takes you along for the ride with FBI agents Ford and Trench(played by Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany) as they try to deal with a new kind of killer in the 1970’s-the serial killer. They enlist the help of Dr. Wendy Carr(played by Anna Torv) to help them understand what they are dealing with. The two agents travel from one dirty and dimly lit prison to another. Along the way, they meet some of the most notorious serial killers ever and sit down with them one by one in an effort to understand what makes each one of them tick, and why they did what they did. Their goal is to understand the minds of these murderers so that they can use their new found knowledge to stop future serial killers by knowing how they think. But what they find is that sometimes, the answers that they are looking for don’t come easy. While most view these serial killers as monsters, Agents Ford and Trench soon discover that these monsters are also human beings, and in some cases alarmingly likable.
Do you live in a home that was once the scene of a crime? Have you always wanted to do some armchair sleuthing and research the case or the background of the house? Or worse yet, do you think it’s possible that the house you live in may have some residual energy from the crime that is resulting in paranormal activity? If any of the above applies to you, then you may want to pay attention to this true crime casting call.
A television project is being developed, and the goal is to reach out to people via a nationwide casting call that live in ‘stigmatized’ homes- those in which a murder or violent crime has taken place at some point. The objective is to give the residents a platform to investigate and discuss these crimes further. If these homes involve any sort of haunting or paranormal activity, then the hope here is that this show can help provide these residents with some of the answers that they might be looking for.
This is your chance, a chance like none other, to participate in your own true crime television show that may at times blend the worlds of crime and the paranormal. Even if this show may not be a fit for you, then perhaps you know somebody that would be a perfect candidate for a show like this. For details, see the flyer attached to this article or visit the official Facebook page for this production. Be sure to reach out today as this show casting is in full swing.
It’s official, updated episodes Unsolved Mysteries are back on Amazon Prime! If you are a fan of true crime, surely you can’t forget Robert Stack’s trench coat, the theme music for the show, and the endless number of cases that they covered. Cases of all kinds were presented from unexplained deaths, to missing persons, to serial killers- even ghosts,UFO’s and Bigfoot himself.
I remember when i was a teenager in the late 1980’s watching the show with my parents while all my friends were playing video games and popping VHS tapes in the VCR. Unsolved Mysteries is truly the show that started my love of true crime. I didn’t miss an episode. I for one am looking forward to seeing updates on old cases. Some of the cases I saw have stuck with me for years, and I have some personal favorites.
