The folks at "House of Cards" sure love the Baltimore area.

Not only is the majority of the political thriller filmed in and around the city (and, full disclosure, in The Baltimore Sun newsroom), now the show's head honcho, Beau Willimon, is slated to come to Towson University on Wednesday (April 24) to discuss how he developed the addictive series.

According to a Towson University press release, Willimon will speak at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday in Van Bokkelen Hall, Room 204. The event is free and open to the public.

According to the release, Willimon "will discuss the production and his role in developing and producing the American political series." The show, an adaptation of a BBC miniseries, premiered its first season in February. Season 2 is in production now.

For those with burning Kevin Spacey-related questions, your prayers have been answered.
