It's a brave new world out there, and Netflix is leading the digital content revolution with House of Cards, the first original series from acclaimed director David Fincher (The Social Network, Seven, Panic Room, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo).
The new series (which will only be available on Netflix starting February 1, 2013) stars Kevin Spacey as the ruthless and cunning Congressman Francis Underwood, who, along with his equally driven wife Claire (played by Robin Wright), will stop at nothing to conquer everything.
Adapted from a British miniseries of the same name, House of Cards is a biting and beautifully shot political drama that digs deep into the "shadowy world of greed, sex, and corruption in modern D.C.," according to the provider. Now, the first trailer for the Netflix-only series has premiered. But considering Cards looks aces and new installments of Arrested Development will also bow in 2013, I can't imagine anyone who won't be a member by 2013.
