Netflix has premiered the trailer for David Fincher's original series "House of Cards" starring Kevin Spacey as Congressman Francis Underwood and Robin Wright as his wife Claire, two people that will stop at nothing to conquer everything. described as a wicked political drama, the series is said to penetrate the shadowy world of greed, sex, and corruption in modern D.C. Additional co-stars include Kate Mara ("American Horror Story"), Michael Kelly and Corey Stoll (Midnight in Paris) with Fincher and Beau Willimon (The Ides of March) producing.

Fincher directs the first two episodes in the 13 episode series with the likes of James Foley (Glengarry Glen Ross), Joel Schumacher (Phone Booth), Charles McDougall ("Queer as Folk") and Carl Franklin (Out of Time) also coming to the director's chair.

All 13 episodes will launch on Netflix on February 1, 2013 available in US, Canada, Latin America, UK, Sweden, Finland and Norway.

Check out the trailer below.

    I thought Fincher was directing all 13 episodes...

    • Steven

      I don't think Fincher can be expected to have the energy and enthusiasm to direct 13 hours of story.

  • Hamza Zain

    That looks fantastic. Been wanting to see Spacey in something he can sink his teeth into again.

  • João

    It looks great!

  • Cordia

    looks good, hoping to see this asap.

  • John Wood

    Looks great - I'm in.

  • Foggy

    Almost shat my self when I saw what I thought was Eli Roth's name next to David Fincher.

    Luckily though, the name was Eric Roth.

    Show looks good, although it does have that high value web series look to it.

      "that high value web series look." What does that mean exactly? It cost $100 million to make.

    Extremely excited for this. With House of Cards and the new season of Arrested Development, Netflix will have some great exclusive offerings early next year!

  • Newbourne

    I'd like to see House of Cards and Arrested Development get some Emmy noms next year. Internet shows are eligible for The Emmys and yet they still haven't given them a chance.

  • AS

    I expect this to be the best show on television (or at least in the top 2).

    Since I see all the comments are quite favorable, I'm reluctant to cast an aspersion on this projected Netflix megahit, but I must point out that:
    (1) This is not an "original series". It is in fact one of these all-American copies of an actually original BBC 1970 Emmy-winning series which starred the inimitable Ian Richardson as Francis Urquhart, chief whip of the Conservative Party.
    (2) Anyone who has actually had the unmitigated delight of watching all 3 seasons of the BBC's "House of Cards" can only shake their head in bemusement at the idea that Kevin Spacey (a very good actor, I'll agree) could, at least on the basis of this trailer, possibly come anywhere close to matching the sheer gleeful venom that Ian Richardson brought to the role.

    • dan

      (1) *This show* is original to Netflix. That's what they mean. Not "original" in the sense that it's not based on anything.
      (2) They're different shows. Are we really going to have to listen to people like you comparing them for the next several months?

        Unfortunately, yes.

  • Jake17

    This looks absolutely fantastic! It's definitely got that Fincher feel to it. With this and Arrested Development, it should be an amazing year for Netflix!
