'House of Cards' Creator Holding Google Q&A, Season 3 Marathon Sponsored by ATX Fest
House of Cards fans now have a way to spice up binging the first six episodes of season three.
Creator Beau Willimon will hold a live Q&A sponosred by ATX Television Festival and Google Fiber in Austin on Feb. 28, where the first six episodes of season three will be screened. Willimon will introduce the episodes, and then answer fan questions for 45 minutes following the episodes via Google Hangouts.
"In the previous two seasons, I've gotten a lot of feedback on Twitter." Willimon tells The Hollywood Reporter. "It's not the same as looking them in the face moments after they've made their way through the first half of the season."
Willimon was approached by ATX fest co-founders Caitlin McFarland and Emily Gipson, who started the fest three years ago. He'll actually be in London for the House of Cards premiere, so he'll be participating in the chat thanks to the magic of the Internet.
He says they settled on limiting the marathon to six episodes because they "are taking into account the human body."
"There are some very strong and enduring individuals out there who might be able to do a 13-hour event, but we wanted to take in account folks that might have to get up for work the next morning, have children and all of those slightly less important things than House of Cards."
The fest, now in its fourth year, features 150 panelists from the TV industry.
House of Cards season three begins streaming on Netflix Feb. 27.
Come back to The Live Feed Thursday for a full interview with Willimon about season three.
