About "House of Cards" Based on the BBC miniseries of the same name, this wicked political drama slithers beneath the curtain and through the back halls of greed, sex, love and corruption in modern Washington D.C.  An uncompromising exploration of power, ambition and the American way, "House of Cards" orbits Francis Underwood ( Kevin Spacey), the House Majority Whip. Underwood is the politician's politician – masterful, beguiling, charismatic and ruthless. He and his equally ambitious wife Claire ( Robin Wright) stop at nothing to ensure their ascendancy. In addition to Spacey and Wright the series also stars Kate Mara ("American Horror Story"), Corey Stoll ("Midnight in Paris"), Kristen Connolly ("The Cabin in the Woods"), Michael Kelly ("The Adjustment Bureau") and Sakina Jaffrey ("Definitely Maybe").
