This smart, dark and hard-edged thriller tells the story of political revenge, starring two-time Academy Award® winner Kevin Spacey (American Beauty, Best Actor in a Leading Role, 1999; The Usual Suspects, Best Actor in a Supporting Role, 1995) as ambitious and ruthless Democratic Congressman Frank Underwood, and Robin Wright (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) as his equally focused wife, Claire. Based on the classic ‘90s British mini-series, the first season in this modern-day political series also stars Kate Mara (TV’s “American Horror Story: Asylum”) and Corey Stoll (Midnight in Paris).
