"House of Cards," the Netflix series starring Kevin Spacey, will be filmed in part in the Calvert Street offices of the Baltimore Sun, it was confirmed Friday.
“We are pleased that we were able to accommodate the production needs for this series," said Steve Seidl, senior vice president of operations and technology for The Baltimore Sun Media Group. "It is always exciting when our city is chosen as a film location, and we are looking forward to being a part of the project."
The production contract with the Baltimore Sun runs through the summer.
Soundstages are also being built in Harford County for a 26-episode order on the American remake of a critically acclaimed political thriller done by the BBC in 1990.
Director David Fincher,"The Social Network," is one of the executive producers on the Netflix project along with Spacey. Fincher is scheduled to direct the pilot, which is expected to start shooting here in April.
