Netflix has made the first episode of their thirteen-episode series House of Cards available for the next month. The series premiered in its entirety on the streaming service today and stars Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright and Kate Mara. David Fincher directed the first two episodes of the series.
"The creative team in front of and behind the camera have delivered a riveting 13-chapter narrative that we're proud to present to Netflix members today," said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. "By offering the first episode for free, including to non-members, we are opening up this fascinating world for everyone to see and are confident they'll want more."
