House of Cards is an American political drama series written for web television and an adaptation of the British mini-series of the same name, which in turn is based on the novel by British author and politician Michael Dobbs. The series revolves around Frank Underwood, played by Kevin Spacey, a Democrat who serves as the House Majority Whip in the current White House administration, and his desire to gain greater power. House of Cards is an enormous commercial success, which is underlined by the countless award nominations the series has received over the years, including more than thirty Primetime Emmy Award nominations. Robin Wright, who plays Frank Underwood's wife Claire, won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series Drama in 2014, while Kevin Spacey won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television Drama Series a year later.
