Shocking Details from the Original ‘House of Cards’ Script!

Assuming you haven’t been living under a rock the past few years, you’ve at least heard of House of Cards, if not binged watched it in your own bed. While the Netflix smash hit takes inspiration from the Michael Dobbs novels and BBC miniseries of the same name, it has truly blossomed into a force of its own.

Of course, American showrunner Beau Willimon started out with a radically different idea of what House of Cards would be, though many of these original ideas never made it to screen. Perhaps the most shocking difference is how often the writers had Frank Underwood say the name of the show–56 times in the first season alone!

Check out some snippets of the original House of Cards below:
