House of Cards May Signal a Wider Shift in Producing TV
An Internet firm like Netflix producing first-rate content takes us across a psychological line. If Netflix succeeds as a producer, other companies will follow and start taking market share. Maybe Amazon will go beyond its tentative investments and throw a hundred million at a different A-list series, or maybe Hulu will expand its ambitions for original content, or maybe the next great show will come from someone with a YouTube channel. When that happens, the baton passes, and empire falls—and we will see the first fundamental change in the home-entertainment paradigm in decades
(from "House of Cards" and the Decline of Cable). The traditional ways shows have gotten funded and green-lit may be shifting, yet there is still a lot of work to be had with the old school networks. More options is a good thing for actors. And new media is becoming more vital and a legitimate source of income everyday.

Lonelygirl15 was the fundamental change. The World just has not recognized it yet. The rest are just following on.
Lonelygirl15 was also the waitress in episode 9 of House of Cards. @Anonymous, interesting connection. @Anonymous, turns out that Jessica Lee Rose, who played Lonelygirl15, was not in the first season of House of Cards. Post a Comment
