House of Cards: Season 1 scene

Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright get political in House of Cards.

Power plays, sex and greed motivate some of Washington’s most powerful decision-makers in the political drama TV series House of Cards: Season 1, starring Kevin Spacey (Horrible Bosses) and Robin Wright (The Private Lives of Pippa Lee) and directed by David Fincher (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).

House of Cards tells the story of Frank Underwood (Spacey), a ruthless and cunning Democratic Congressman from South Carolina who, after getting passed over for promotion to Secretary of State, decides to exact his revenge on those who betrayed him. Wright portrays his wife, Claire, who’s equally determined to get her husband ahead in the political game.

Written by Beau Willimon (The Ides of March), the series also stars Kate Mara (127 Hours), Corey Stoll (Midnight in Paris), Michael Kelly (TV’s Person of Interest), Kristen Connolly (The Cabin in the Woods),  and Constance Zimmer (TV’s Entourage).

An adaptation of the 1990 BBC television miniseries of the same name, House of Cards is a NetFlix Original Series that premiered exclusively on Netflix’s web streaming service in February, 2013 to generally positive reviews.

All 13 episodes of the show will be available on a four-disc Blu-ray and four-disc DVD set featuring the kind of razzle-dazzle packaging that’s usually associated with David Fincher’s projects.

No bonus features have been announced for the discs.
