Netflix announced that season four of its flagship original series “House of Cards” will premiere on March 4 in a simple and dramatic fashion — with a faux campaign video from its main character, President Frank Underwood (played by Kevin Spacey).
Last week, Spacey’s co-star (and on-screen wife/First Lady) Robin Wright earned a Golden Globe nomination for the Best Actress in a TV Series — Drama for her work on season three of the show. Spacey won a Golden Globe for Actor in a TV Series — Drama category for his work in season two, but he was not nominated this year.
“House of Cards” had a disappointing showing at this year’s Emmys, winning two awards from eleven nominations: Jeff Beal for Music Composition for a Series (Original Dramatic Score) and Reg E. Cathey for Guest Actor in a Drama for his role as barbeque restaurant owner-turned-White House groundsman Freddy.
In addition to Spacey and Wright, the “House of Cards” cast also includes Michael Kelly, Molly Parker, Mahershala Ali, Jayne Atkinson, Nathan Darrow, Elizabeth Marvel, Derek Cecil and Jimmi Simpson.
Based on a British miniseries of the same name, “House of Cards” is produced for Netflix by Spacey’s Trigger Street Productions and David Fincher, Eric Roth and Joshua Donen, in association with financier Media Rights Capital. Executive producers include Fincher, Donen, Roth, Spacey, Spacey’s Trigger Street partner Dana Brunetti, Andrew Davies, Michael Dobbs and series creator and showrunner Beau Willimon.
