Last I read on this there were all kinds of “issues” because Netflix was being pulled over the $100MM mark for the production of this original series. What do you expect when you partner up with one of the most detail oriented filmmakers with a penchant for perfection? From the looks of the trailer, I think they will NOT regret their investment and I imagine they may get some new subscribers or some standard by-mail accounts to add the streaming functionality to their profiles. House of Cards premieres 2/1/13.
ABOUT THE SHOW:
Bad, for a greater good. Ruthless and cunning, Congressman Francis Underwood (Oscar® winner Kevin Spacey) and his wife Claire (Robin Wright) stop at nothing to conquer everything. This wicked political drama penetrates the shadowy world of greed, sex, and corruption in modern D.C. Kate Mara (“American Horror Story”) and Corey Stoll (“Midnight in Paris”) costar in the first original series from David Fincher (“The Social Network”) and Beau Willimon (“The Ides of March”).
