In Conversation with “House of Cards” Creator Beau Willimon

The creator of "House of Cards" discusses the future of television and movies with legendary entertainment industry leader Michael Eisner.

Beau Willimon is an American playwright and screenwriter whose early work, before working in entertainment, included volunteering for the political campaigns of Charles Schumer, Hillary Clinton, Bill Bradley, and Howard Dean.

Willimon wrote the play “Farragut North”, the basis for the George Clooney film “The Ides of March”, which premiered in off Broadway in 2008. His other plays include “Spirit Control” and “Lower Ninth”

In 2012, Willimon developed the show House of Cards for Netflix. The show is an American adaption of the BBC series of the same name. House of Cards premiered on Netflix on early 2013. The show has run for two seasons and a third season is currently in production.
