Interesting scoop in Deadline.com: It reports that Netflix has actually landed a two-season commitment for a David Fincher/Kevin Spacey (who stars) drama, "House of Cards."
With those names attached, it was clearly a hot property, and the website says it outbid (even) HBO. This is actually a remake of an old BBC series (20 years old) and the Michael Dobbs book of the same name.
What's Netflix doing in the original TV biz? Maybe in anticipation of the day the major studios squeeze it out of the streaming/mail-in movie biz.
