Witness the power plays, sex and greed that motivate some of Washington's most powerful decision-makers when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment releases Media Rights Capital's House of Cards: The Complete First Season on Blu-ray and DVD June 11th.

Based on the classic '90s British mini-series, the first season in this modern-day political series also stars Kate Mara (TV's American Horror Story") and Corey Stoll (Midnight in Paris).
