Despite tonight’s focus on the Oscars and the #MeToo movement in its broadcast, Netflix has unleashed its look at the post-Frank Underwood era. The show dismissed Spacey after allegations of sexual misconduct with dozens of people surfaced, making him one of the highest profile actors affected by the sexual harassment outrage of the last few months.
He was dismissed from the show and the producers vowed to continue without him, a somewhat dicey proposition given his prominent role in the show.
House of Cards stars Golden Globe winner and Emmy Award nominee Robin Wright, as well as Michael Kelly, Diane Lane, Greg Kinnear, Jayne Atkinson, Patricia Clarkson, Cody Fern, Constance Zimmer, Derek Cecil, Campbell Scott and Boris McGiver.
House of Cards executive producers are showrunners Melissa James Gibson and Frank Pugliese, and Robin Wright, David Fincher, Joshua Donen, Dana Brunetti, Eric Roth, Michael Dobbs and Andrew Davies.
The series was created by Beau Willimon and is produced by Donen/Fincher/Roth. MRC is the studio. The series has received 53 Emmy nominations to date, with seven wins.
