Netflix Adds ‘House of Cards’ Director’s Commentary for Season 1

Internet video service offers DVD-like feature for Emmy-winning original series starring Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright

Netflix is now offering a DVD-style extra for original drama “House of Cards” on its Internet streaming service: scene-by-scene commentary by the directors of each episode.

With the addition of “HoC” director’s commentary, Netflix is hoping to reinvigorate subscriber interest in the political thriller ahead of the show’s season 2 debut next month. Starting Friday, Netflix is providing optional audio commentary from all six of the first season’s helmers, including: David Fincher (“The Social Network”), James Foley (“Glengarry Glen Ross”), Joel Schumacher (“Falling Down”), Charles McDougall (“The Good Wife”), Carl Franklin (“Homeland”) and Allen Coulter (“The Sopranos”).

The director’s commentary is available as an option on the subtitle and alternate audio preference on Netflix. It’s available exclusively for members in all territories where Netflix is available. While “House of Cards” season 1 is available on DVD, the director’s commentary isn’t included on those discs.

Season 1 of the series debuted on Feb. 1, 2013. The series was nominated for nine Primetime Emmy Awards and took home three — Fincher for directing along with wins in casting and cinematography — a first for an Internet-distributed show. The one-hour drama is produced by Fincher, Joshua Donen, Eric Roth and Kevin Spacey’s Trigger Street Productions, in association with Media Rights Capital for Netflix.

Netflix has announced it will debut all 13 episodes of the second season of “House of Cards” on Feb. 14, 2014.
