So while Netflix played a role in bringing House of Cards to our screens, it was the skilled sound designers at Skywalker Sound who helped bring the show to life.
As you hit play on your favorite Netflix show, you hear that familiar sound. But wait, is that the intro from House of Cards? Fans have been debating whether or not the iconic intro music from the political drama has been repurposed for the streaming giant's opening sequence. Let's investigate.
