Interview with The Mentalist's editorial team

“It’s all about the clues, what Patrick Jane sees or senses, and the journey to his conclusions,” says The Mentalist picture editor David Ekstrom, who cuts the CBS series with Chris Cibelli, Glenn Farr and Jimmy Gadd. “The Mentalist differs from other shows that I’ve cut in recent years in that the pace of the show is driven by the process that our lead character uses to solve the crime,” Ekstrom continues. “The exposition that would typically be on camera often takes place while he is walking around a room looking at photos or books or whatever.”

Airing Thursday nights at 10:00 p.m., The Mentalist stars Golden Globe nominee Simon Baker as Patrick Jane, an independent investigating consultant (think a modern-day Sherlock Holmes) who helps the police solve serious crimes by using his razor-sharp skills of observation. The series is shot on 35mm film at Warner Bros. in Burbank with the stages, production and post-production offices all on the lot.
