Netflix Reportedly Picks Up Serial Killer Drama From Charlize Theron, House Of Cards Director

Netflix might add another drama to its slate of original series. The streaming video-on-demand platform has reportedly picked up the serial killer-themed show Mindhunter , developed by House of Cards director and executive producer David Fincher alongside actress Charlize Theron . The Mindhunter series is based off the 1996 book Mind Hunter: Inside the FBIs Elite Serial Crime Unit by Mark Olshaker and former special agent John E. Douglas . The book tells the backstory of Douglas methods for profiling and catching some of the most notorious serial killers, like the Atlanta child murderer and the Seattle Green River Killer Gary Ridgway . Douglas is already a familiar name in the film industry, as various TV and movie characters have been based off him (like Jack Crawford in Silence of the Lambs and Will Graham from Hannibal ). According a report from Deadline , producer Jennifer Orme Erwin originally brought the Mind Hunter book to Theron six years ago. The project was picked up by HBO and Fox 21 with Dexter s executive producer Scott Buck as scriptwriter, but Mindhunter didnt move forward until now. Netflix will reportedly produce the series previously optioned by HBO and Fox 21, with Theron and Fincher on board as executive producers. Fincher will likely direct the script written by Sunny Afternoon' s playwright Joe Penhall . No release date has been announced for Mindhunter as of yet. Visit Tubefilter for more great stories.

Netflix Is Working To Improve Streaming Quality, Use 20% Less Data In 2016

Netflix is one of the most widely-used video-on-demand platforms in the U.S., accounting for up to 37% of downstream bandwidth traffic during peak evening hours. All that video streaming has routinely clogged up internet service providers bandwidth over the years and slowed down Netflix subscribers streaming quality, too. Last year, it became public knowledge the VOD platform even paid Comcast for its extended bandwidth usage in order to help improve the streaming experience for users. Now, however, Netflix has a new strategy for upping the quality of subscribers streams. Instead of paying ISPs more to cover bandwidth usage or invest in upgrading its own network and systems, Variety reports Netflix will re-encode all its titles by hand to improve overall streaming quality...

Republican House of Cards? Why Jeb Bush's Trump Decoy Theory Isn't Insane

Tonight's final Republican presidential debate of 2015 will be a lot more interesting if you keep in mind Jeb Bush's suggestion that Donald Trump may be secretly working for Hillary Clinton . Jeb may have been kidding. And no one took him very seriously. But the Washington Post did a nice job of laying out how such a House of Cards-like scenario might work: Politician A enters into a secret alliance with Politician B a loose-tongued rival from another party with the chutzpah, the cashand the power to play thespoiler to ensure Politician As election. There are lots of ways Trump could help Clinton: He could draw attention from other Republican candidates . He could distract Republican leaders by forcing them to consider scenarios where his popularity doesnt fade. And he could lure his rivals into making xenophobic comments to match his own, which might make them less electable in a general election...
