David Fincher’s HOUSE OF CARDS to Premiere All 13 Episodes on Netflix on February 1, 2013

With the exception of Arrested Development, there is no higher-profile show for Netflix than David Fincher‘s House of Cards.  The series “follows ruthless politician Francis Underwood (Kevin Spacey), the majority whip of the House of Representatives, and his wife, Claire (Robin Wright), as they pursue power and all the good things that come with it in Washington.”  Netflix, if it plans to survive, has to develop original content, and Fincher’s adaptation of the BBC TV series could be a major hit.  Since Netflix doesn’t have to abide by the same rules as traditional networks, the New York Times is reporting that the subscription streaming service will premiere all 13 episodes on February 1, 2013.  Fincher developed the series and directed the first two episodes with other episodes being directed by James Foley, Joel Schumacher, Carl Franklin, Alan Coulter, and Charles McDougall.

Coupled with the fourth seasons of Arrested Development, 2013 could be a huge year for Netflix in terms of breaking away from its flagging steaming service, and breaking into a redefinition of broadcast television.  Hit the jump to check out the first poster for House of Cards.
