While networks like HBO are seen as the place filmmakers and showrunners want to make a home if they have a good idea for a serialized television show, Netflix is trying its best to take a bit of stake in that game.

The network has become a revival house, re-sparking shows like Arrested Development and The Killing, and thanks to David Fincher and Kevin Spacey, they’ve got themselves an A-list bit of original programming set to debut relatively soon.

A trailer has arrived for the pair’s upcoming show, House Of Cards, and it’s superb. Starring Spacey, the show follows a Congressman who is hell bent on taking control of everything. Looking at the ‘back halls of greed, sex, love and corruption in modern D.C.,’ Cards is spearheaded by the pair of Spacey and Fincher, and is based on a BBC TV thriller.

With directors like Carl Franklin and James Foley aboard to helm some episodes, this is shaping up to be one hell of a series. Fincher is the perfect type of filmmaker/producer to dig into a subject like this, so hopefully this cast and crew can make this live up to the hype and potential.
