The “Seven” team of Kevin Spacey and director David Fincher, abetted by the “Ides of March” screenwriter Beau Willmon, have created a TV-like 13-epiosode political drama for Netflix titled “House of Cards.”
Netflix provides the premise:
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”).
