‘House Of Cards’ trailer: Netflix’s first original series

K. Thor Jensen Contributing Writer, Entertainment

Guess what, TV networks? Your days are numbered. Netflix is making big plays in the entertainment sphere to bring original content to streaming viewers before it’s aired anywhere else. They’ve brought over a few foreign shows, but the exciting stuff is their original series: the next season of Arrested Development, a new show from the creator of Weeds called Orange Is The New Black, and this: House Of Cards. A political drama developed by David Fincher and Kevin Spacey, who also stars, House Of Cards chronicles an unscrupulous Congressman’s quest for the Presidency. At a cost of over $100 million, this is a big gamble for Netflix. We’ll see if it pays off next February.
