Frank Underwood is the president in Netflix' "House of Cards," though the faux commander-in-chief won't be at Saturday's filming in D.C.

A faux presidential motorcade will be filmed this weekend in D.C., but neither President Obama nor a certain fictitious commander-in-chief will actually be there.

The hit Netflix show House of Cards will be filming in the city on Saturday. The shoot will include footage of a mock presidential motorcade, as well as B-roll footage.

The show, which chronicled in it's first two seasons the rise of fictional South Carolina Congressman Frank Underwood from House Majority Whip to vice president and then the nation's top job, is set in D.C. but is mostly filmed at a sound stage in Hartford County, northeast of Baltimore.

The third season of the show is still shooting there despite a protracted legislative battle with Maryland lawmakers earlier this year after producers threatened to leave the state if they weren't given more tax credits for shooting there.

If you want to catch a glimpse of House of Cards stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Penn tomorrow, you're out of luck, as they won't be at the filming.
