Belgian to work with star actors in 'House of Cards'

The Belgian director Jakob Verbruggen is to direct the last two episodes of season 4 of the popular Netflix series 'House of Cards'. The Belgian will have the honour to cooperate with Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright.

Verbruggen first made fame in Flanders with the detective series 'Code 37' with actress Veerle Baetens on the commercial station VTM. He took a new career step with the international series 'London Spy' and 'The Fall'.

"The adventure I had with 'The Fall' started my international career. The series was well received, and I was asked to do a second season. However, it didn't fit in my plans and I switched to 'London Spy'. It's really different and original."

His efforts did not go unnoticed. At present, Jakob Verbruggen (photo) is in Baltimore, in the U.S., for the season final of 'House of Cards'. This gives him the chance to cooperate with Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, among others. "It's a real kick, seeing these stars just in front of you."

'House of Cards' plays in the White House and is about intrigues and political games that are played at the highest level of American politics.
