‘HOUSE OF CARDS’ LIVES ON

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

Though “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey has been swept up in a sex scan­dal this week, On­line provider Net­flix is not ready to fold the deck on the pop­u­lar se­ries.

“Net­flix is mov­ing ahead with plans for a “House of Cards” spinoff,” writes Daniel Hol­loway, a se­nior re­porter for Va­ri­ety, who re­ports that at least three dif­fer­ent sce­nar­ios in the politi­cal thriller mode are be­ing bandied about by pro­duc­ers, based on strong char­ac­ters al­ready fa­mil­iar with the view­ing au­di­ence.

‘House of Cards” is widely cred­ited as the show that put Net­flix on the orig­i­nal pro­gram­ming map when it pre­miered in 2013, Mr. Hol­loway says, not­ing that the se­ries has been nom­i­nated for 53 prime­time Emmy Awards.
