David Fincher's HOUSE OF CARDS Poster and Release Date

Netflix has officially announced a release date and schedule for David Fincher's House of Cards. The original series will premiere on February 1, and each of the 13 episodes will immediately be available to stream.  The series is adapted from the BBC TV-drama of the same name and follows "the ruthless politician Francis Underwood (Kevin Spacey), the majority whip of the House of Representatives, and his wife, Claire (Robin Wright), as they pursue power and all the good things that come with it in Washington. The series also stars Kate Mara, Kristen Connolly, Michael Kelly and Sakina Jaffrey.

Fincher (The Social Network, Zodiac, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) served as executive producer, and directed the first two episodes, which were written by Beau Willimon (The Ides of March). Other episodes were directed by James Foley (Glengarry Glen Ross), Joel Schumacher (Falling Down), Carl Franklin (Devil in a Blue Dress), Alan Coulter and Charles McDougall

Netflix has already confirmed that there will be a second season, which is part of their growing slate of original programming. Other shows include Arrested Development, Hemlock Grove, a murder mystery series from Eli Roth; and Orange is the New Black, a comedy whose creators include Jenji Kohan (Weeds). 


I like Fincher as a feature director, and am interested in seeing him direct a series. Do you plan on watching House of Cards when it airs?
