Show Details

The winner of multiple Emmy, Golden and Television Critics Association Awards House of Card debuts on Monday at 21:30 from 1st April, 2019 on SABC 3.  

House of Cards is a wicked one-hour political drama series from Media Rights Capital that slithers behind the curtain of power, sex, ambition, love, greed and corruption in modern Washington D.C.  From Academy Award nominated director David Fincher (Fight Club), Academy Award nominated writer Beau Willimon (The Ides of March), Academy Award winning writer Eric Roth (Forrest Gump), and starring Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey (Horrible Bosses) and Golden Globe nominee Robin Wright (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).

An uncompromising exploration of power, ambition and the American way, the series orbits Francis Underwood (Spacey), the House Majority Whip. Underwood is the politician’s politician – masterful, beguiling, charismatic and ruthless. He and his equally ambitious wife Claire (Wright) stop at nothing to ensure their ascendancy.

In addition to Spacey and Wright, the series also stars Kate Mara, Corey Stoll, Kristen Connolly Michael Kelly and Sakina Jaffrey

Based on the critically acclaimed BBC miniseries of the same name, House of Cards trades in Parliament for the U.S. Capitol in the transnational and universal story of political deceit. Originally written as a novel by former U.K. Conservative Party Chief of Staff Lord Michael Dobbs, the adapted miniseries produced by Dobbs and Andrew Davies went on to win an Emmy Award in the writing category and BAFTA TV Award for the lead actor, among other honors. 

Frances Underwood is hungry for success and he'll stop at nothing to achieve his goals. With twists and turns at every corner, this crafty drama will never cease to amaze as it pushes boundaries to get to the core of one man's desire to rule the world. To find out just how far one man will go, stay tuned to House of Cards every Monday and Tuesday at 9h30pm on SABC 3 “The Stage Is Your”.
