All 13-episodes of the drama series's first season will be available to 
Netflix members in territories where Netflix is available - North America, the 
UK, Ireland, Latin America and Scandinavia. 
"'House of Cards' combines the best of filmmaking with the best of television. 
Beau Willimon's compelling narrative, David Fincher's unparalleled 
craftsmanship, indelible performances by Kevin Spacey and the rest of the cast 
unite to create a gripping story and new kind of viewing experience for 
Netflix members," said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer, Netflix. "In 
offering the entire season at once, Netflix is giving viewers complete control 
over how and when they watch the show." 
From director David Fincher ("The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," "The Social 
Network"), award-winning playwright and Academy Award(®) nominated 
screenwriter Beau Willimon ("Farragut North," "The Ides of March") and Academy 
Award(®) winner Eric Roth ("Forrest Gump," "Munich"), "House of Cards" 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 Corey Stoll ("Midnight in Paris"), Kristen Connolly ("The Cabin in 
the Woods"), Michael Kelly ("The Adjustment Bureau") and Sakina Jaffrey 
("Definitely Maybe"). 
Fincher directed the first two episodes of the series, which were written by 
Willimon. James Foley ("Glengarry Glen Ross"), Joel Schumacher ("Falling 
Down"), Charles McDougall ("The Good Wife"), Carl Franklin ("Devil in a Blue 
Dress") and Alan Coulter ("The Sopranos") also serve as directors on "House of 
Cards." 
The drama's second season is due to begin production in spring 2013. 
House of Cards is executive produced by Fincher, Willimon, Joshua Donen, Eric 
Roth, Kevin Spacey, Dana Brunetti, Andrew Davies, Michael Dobbs and John 
Melfi. The one-hour drama is produced by Donen/Fincher/Roth and Trigger Street 
Productions, Inc. in association with Media Rights Capital for Netflix.
