Though based in Washington, D.C., "House of Cards" is largely filmed in Maryland.
Annapolis is getting a high-profile visit tomorrow night. Well, kind of — it's a fictional elected official that will appear in the state capital.
Actor Kevin Spacey, who portrays Frank Underwood on the hit Netflix show "House of Cards," will appear at a reception at an Annapolis wine bar tomorrow night where he'll meet with members of the Maryland General Assembly, according to The Washington Post.
A bill before lawmakers in Annapolis would increase the tax credits film companies receive in Maryland. The producers of the show, which is mostly filmed in Hartford County, have threatened to leave the state if those credits aren't increased.
The state Senate has already approved the bill, but it's now before the House of Delegates, where some heavier lifting will be needed to get it passed — fitting since Frank Underwood started on "House of Cards" as the House Democratic Whip in Congress.
Delegates will have to act quickly, as there's just a little more than two weeks remaining in this year's legislative session.
