New ‘House Of Cards’ To Be Filmed In Baltimore

BALTIMORE (AP) — An American remake of the BBC political drama “House of Cards” that will star Kevin Spacey will be filmed in Baltimore.

Maryland officials announced Thursday the production will begin filming this spring. The first season includes 13 hour-long episodes and debuts later in the year. It’s directed by David Fincher, who made the Oscar-nominated film about Facebook.

The series is based on the novel and series exploring Margaret Thatcher’s era in British politics. It will be distributed by
Netflix in what would be the first time its video streaming service gets first-run episodes.

Gov. Martin O’Malley says officials expect a $75 million economic impact from the production and more than 2,000 jobs. A state fund offers a partial tax credit for local production expenditures and encourages use of local crews.
