Toppling Like A House Of... Something

DATELINE: Hollywood–– This week streaming giant Netflix announced that due to numerous allegations of sexual abuse and misconduct, it was firing actor Kevin Spacey from their popular political series House Of Cards.

Filming of the series' sixth season was well underway when the allegations surfaced. Initially Netflix suspended production on the show, but later announced they severed their relationship with Spacey and planned to continue production without him.

This move will prove highly problematic for the network, as Spacey played main character Frank Underwood, the ostensible star of the series.

When asked how House Of Cards could possibly continue in light of these developments, a Netflix spokesman said they planned to replace Spacey with actor Dick Sargent, and simply never mention it or acknowledge the change in the show.
