First Look: SundanceTV's The Writers Room Tackles Netflix's House of Cards

Actress Molly Parker admits she doesn't know why she was invited to appear on this week's episode of SundanceTV's The Writers' Room. "But I'm happy to be here," she says, eager to celebrate the creative minds behind Netflix's House of Cards.

Parker, who joined the second season of House of Cards as Congresswoman Jackie Sharp, says she was drawn to the show because of executive producer Beau Willimon, who adapted the series for U.S. audiences. "Clearly not all television is created equal," Parker says. "To have the opportunity to work on a show that the writer-creator has such a strong vision and is just so talented, it's an honor."
