HOUSE OF CARDS coming to U.S. television.

Time for another U.K. hit to get Americanized.

According to THR, David Fincher (SEVEN, ZODIAC) is working on turning the BBC mini-series HOUSE OF CARDS into an hour long drama for U.S. television.

The original series, based on the novel by Michael Dobbs, was set right after the end of Margaret Thatcher’s run as British Prime Minister. It followed an ambitious politician that wants the top post.

Americanizing U.K. shows has had mixed results. For every THE OFFICE, we get a number of turds like COUPLING. But Fincher has proven himself to be quite gifted so I have some hope for this.
