Doug Stamper may get his own show.
House of Cards spinoff is reportedly in early development stages at Netflix.A
Variety reports that several concept ideas set in the same universe as Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) are being discussed between the streaming service and producer Media Rights Capital. One focuses on political aide-de-camp Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly), with House of Cards S 1-4 executive producer Eric Roth set to write. The publication reports that at least two other concepts are being explored, but no writers are attached yet.
The report comes in the wake of Netflix’s official announcement that House of Cards will end after season 6, which TVLine says was a decision made months ago, rather than made in the light of the recent disturbing allegations made against Spacey. Netflix and series producer Media Rights Capital released a joint statement yesterday saying they are “deeply troubled” by these allegations, but as of writing, season 6 is still going ahead.
