About the Show

House of Cards is an American political drama television series developed and produced by Beau Willimon as an adaptation of a BBC miniseries of the same name (which in turn is based on the novel by Michael Dobbs) and set in Washington, D.C., which follows Frank Underwood, the House Majority Whip who - after getting passed over for appointment to Secretary of State - decides to exact his revenge on those who betrayed him.

From director David Fincher (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Social Network), award-winning playwright and Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Beau Willimon (Farragut North, The Ides of March) and Academy Award-winner Eric Roth (Forrest Gump, Munich), House of Cards is based on the BBC miniseries of the same name.

This wicked political drama slithers beneath the curtain and through the back halls of greed, sex, love and corruption in modern Washington D.C.

An uncompromising exploration of power, ambition and the American way, the series orbits Francis Underwood (Kevin Spacey), the House Majority Whip. Underwood is the politician's politician - masterful, beguiling, charismatic and ruthless.

He and his equally ambitious wife Claire (Robin Wright) stop at nothing to ensure their ascendancy. In addition to Spacey, Wright and Kate Mara, the series also stars Corey Stoll (Midnight in Paris), Kristen Connolly (The Cabin in the Woods), Michael Kelly (The Adjustment Bureau) and Sakina Jaffrey (Definitely Maybe).

Fincher directed the first two episodes of the series, which were written by Willimon. James Foley (Glengarry Glen Ross), Joel Schumacher (Falling Down), Charles McDougall (The Good Wife), Carl Franklin (Devil in a Blue Dress) and Alan Coulter (The Sopranos) also serve as directors on House of Cards.

House of Cards is executive produced by Fincher, Willimon, Joshua Donen, Eric Roth, Kevin Spacey, Dana Brunetti, Andrew Davies, Michael Dobbs and John Melfi.

The one-hour drama is produced by Donen/Fincher/Roth and Trigger Street Productions, Inc. in association with Media Rights Capital for Netflix.
