House of Cards (Netflix, February 2013)

Netflix has released a trailer (embedded below) for its original series House of Cards.

This wicked political drama penetrates the shadowy world of greed, sex, and corruption in modern D.C. and stars Kevin Spacey as Congressman Francis Underwood and Robin Wright as his wife Claire, who together will stop at nothing to conquer everything.

Based on the 1990 BBC series of the same title, itself an adaptation of Michael Dobbs' 1989 novel (the first of a trilogy featuring the character; more about the book below), the first season of House of Cards premieres in its entirety only for Netflix streaming subscribers on February 1st, 2013.

House of Cards by Michael Dobbs

Michael Dobbs

When Francis Urquhart decides to fight for the ultimate political job — Prime Minister — he issues no challenge to the present incumbent. Instead, using the ammunition of political secrets he's acquired over the years as Chief Whip, he begins a silent, deadly campaign to eliminate every other candidate in any way he can — including murder. Mattie Storin, a young woman journalist, is the only one to sense Urquhart's terrifying self-interest and intent — but to take him on she must range herself against the most powerful men in the country.
