It’s been revealed that executives for the hit Netflix show House of Cards are ‘desperately trying to hire’ the scriptwriters of the 2016 Presidential election. 
 
A senior Netflix source told The Spark that the online network was ‘completely amazed’ by the ‘quality and depth’ of the script used for the 2016 Presidential election, and admitted that unless they brought in new talent they would ‘struggle to compete’. 
 
The source revealed that a top Netflix executive had described the election as ‘absolutely pulsating’ with ‘constant plot twists’ involving Russian hacking, private email servers and accusations of sexual harassment against one of the chief candidates. He later admitted that some of this would have to be ‘toned down’ to keep House of Cards ‘at least somewhat believable’. 
 
Industry insiders have largely shared this assessment. Steve Barnes, a TV critic at the New York Times, noted that House of Cards was looking like ‘a utopian and idealised vision of American politics’ when compared to the 2016 Presidential election. He added that House of Cards' President Underwood might be a murderer, but at least he’s not ‘clearly batshit insane’.
