PITTSBURGH (AP) – Pittsburgh is playing home to a new Netflix drama that will receive $18.7 million in film tax credits from the state.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports “Mindhunter” will be filmed in the city. It’s based on the 1996 book, “Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit” by John Douglas and Mark Olshaker. It will follow a top FBI investigator of serial killers.
Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos acknowledged “Mindhunter” in January at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, but declined to divulge more details.
The film tax credit program was frozen last year because of the state budget impasse, but restrictions on committing to future projects were lifted last month after Gov. Tom Wolf signed off on funding for schools, social services and county governments.
