The first season of House of Cards, from executive producer and Academy Award nominated screenwriter Beau Willimon, stars Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey (Horrible Bosses, American Beauty, The Usual Suspects), Golden Globe nominee Robin Wright (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Forrest Gump) and Kate Mara (American Horror Story) and 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 (Spacey), the House Majority Whip. Underwood is the politician's politician - masterful, beguiling, charismatic and ruthless. He and his equally ambitious wife Claire (Wright) stop at nothing to ensure their ascendancy. In addition to Spacey, Wright and Mara, the series also stars Golden Globe nominee Corey Stoll (Midnight in Paris), Michael Kelly (The Adjustment Bureau), Kristen Connolly (The Cabin in the Woods) and Sakina Jaffrey (Definitely, Maybe).
Recognized by AFI as one of the Top 10 Programs of the Year, the Telegraph (UK) lauded House of Cards as "the most remarkable new television drama of the year," while the Philadelphia Inquirer hailed the show "a fascinating, first-class political thriller" and Entertainment Weekly described it as "deliciously bingeable."
The second season (13-episodes) of House of Cards will premiere Friday, February 14, 2014.
