Not busy this weekend? Good. Because starting this Friday, Netflix will be premiering the first season of Kevin Spacey's hotly-anticipated political-drama series "House Of Cards." All 13 episodes will be released at once. So, it will probably be best if you start fixing up that sofa chair with cushions and snacks. But before you do, maybe check out this brand-new trailer, and get a taste of what's in store for this season.
Executive produced by David Fincher, "House Of Cards" revolves around Francis Underwood (played by Spacey), a venomous Congressman who slithers his way through Capitol Hill, while using every dirty trick in the book to get into power. Robin Wright co-stars as Underwood's power-hungry wife, while Kate Mara plays a young ambitious reporter who literately (maybe naively) gets in bed with the Congressman for some inside dirt on America's political system. And from what we can tell, morals and ethics will be tested. Looks like fun.
Ruthless and cunning, Congressman Francis Underwood (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 and Corey Stoll co-star in the first original series from David Fincher (The Social Network) and Beau Willimon (The Ides of March).
