House Of Cards Production To Resume Next Month
The show must go on, and that it will.
According to BBC, the fan-favorite Netflix series, House of Cards, will resume production in just a few short weeks following the sexual abuse scandal of the show’s star Kevin Spacey.
Media Rights Capital Senior Vice President of television and legal affairs, Pauline Micelli, wrote a letter addressing the hiatus for The Hollywood Reporter:
We continue to work with Netflix with the hope of resuming production soon. As we continue these discussions, we have determined together that the crew will be paid for an additional two week hiatus – beginning on November 27th and continuing through December 8th.
In addition to the writers, there will be a small contingency of office/accounting staff who will remain in the production office on a continuous basis. Our hope is that the entire crew will be able to reconvene when production resumes, but we want you to know that we will certainly understand if crew members need to find other work in the interim, which will prevent them from re-joining us. We sincerely appreciate all you have done.
It can be assumed that the writing staff who will be on-board will be working feverishly to find a way to write Spacey out of the series in a way that makes SOME kind of sense. Good luck to those folks.
Will you be watching House of Cards when it resumes?
