In March 2012, we were contacted by a set designer for a new series that was going to be released in 2013 via Netflix. They ordered our print of New Hampshire and asked for permission to use our print on their set. We didn’t know much about the series, other than it was going to be called House of Cards and it would star Kevin Spacey. (And who doesn’t love Kevin Spacey? I mean, The Usual Suspects is one of the all-time great classic movies as far as we’re concerned.)
We didn’t think much about it until we heard that the series was being released on February 1, 2013. My sister was the first to spot it on that Friday night that it was released. Our print is shown a whopping two times in the first episode (don’t blink, or else you’ll miss it)!
So, Mapmystate.com has had our “fifteen minutes of fame”—or maybe it’s more like “1.2 seconds of fame”. But we’ll take it!
Check out House of Cards and see if you find our print on the first episode. The series has a great cast with Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright, Kate Mara, and many more. And the first two episodes were directed by David Fincher (director of The Social Network, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Fight Club, and other great films).
