highly-anticipated, critically-acclaimed drama series "House of Cards" to

"The creative team in front of and behind the camera have delivered a riveting 
13-chapter narrative that we're proud to present to Netflix members today,"

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 
stars Corey Stoll ("Midnight in Paris"), Kristen Connolly ("The Cabin in the 
Woods"), Michael Kelly ("The Adjustment Bureau") and Sakina Jaffrey
