House of Cards Trailer: Kevin Spacey Stars in Netflix Political Thriller

at . Comments

House of Cards, a Netflix original series premiering in February, stars Kevin Spacey as a bitter U.S. Congressman denied a Cabinet post by the President-elect - and who goes rogue shortly thereafter.

The show marks the first regular role in a series for the acclaimed, Academy Award-winning Spacey, and the trailer below is ... well, like a full-length feature film trailer. It's no wonder he signed on.

Underwood's wife Claire (Robin Wright) is by his side as he takes on the president (Michael Gill) in a ruthless power grab, with a young reporter (Kate Mara) coerced into helping his intriguing, corrupt cause.

Corey Stoll (Law & Order: LA) and Michael Kelly (Person of Interest) also star in House of Cards, which debuts February 1 and will be comprised of 13 episodes. Watch the trailer below:

The series is part of Netflix's new lineup of original shows, which also includes Orange Is the New Black, Hemlock Grove and most notably the resurrected Fox comedy hit Arrested Development.
