A push from local filmmakers for a new film tax credit plan reached the steps of the Maryland State House this year amid production of the shortened sixth and final season of Netflix’s 21-time Emmy nominee “House of Cards” in the Baltimore area.
Trying to read the tea leaves on as unpredictable a situation as the one involving “House of Cards” following the firing of Kevin Spacey is a risky business. But while some have read a letter sent to Maryland crew members as a hopeful sign for life after Spacey, I think it could mean the opposite.
The production crew for “House of Cards,” which has been on hiatus after sexual misconduct allegations against actor Kevin Spacey, will be paid for an additional two weeks, according to an email from Media Rights Capital.
The speed with which disgrace can shred a distinguished career these days is dizzying. A few days ago, Kevin Spacey was one of the biggest stars in Hollywood. Today, his career in TV, film and, perhaps, even theater appears to be over.
Responding to another report of sexual assault and harassment by Kevin Spacey, the production company behind the Netflix hit “House of Cards” said it was “deeply troubled” by the allegations against the show’s star and executive producer.
Netflix had no choice but to suspend production Tuesday on season 6 of “House of Cards.” For all the millions of dollars involved in such a far-reaching decision, David Zurawik says he will be surprised if it ever resumes with Kevin Spacey.
Netflix has announced that it’s ending “House of Cards” after its upcoming sixth season. The news came amid sexual misconduct allegations made against Kevin Spacey, actor and star of the political drama.
