House of Cards is described as uncompromising exploration of power, ambition and the American way. The series follows Francis Underwood, the House Majority Whip and the politician’s politician – masterful, beguiling, charismatic and ruthless. He and his equally ambitious wife Claire stop at nothing to ensure their ascendancy.
It stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright.
Season three, which launched on Netflix in February, was executive produced by Willimon, David Fincher, Joshua Donen, Spacey, Dana Brunetti, John David Coles, and Eric Roth.
It is produced by Trigger Street Productions in association with Media Rights Capital.
Season four is likely to be available to subscribers in early 2016.
