Why this show: Kevin Spacey is not afraid of a few showtunes; don't forget the actor directed and starred in the musical biopic "Beyond the Sea." And Sebastian Arcelus toured with Wicked before playing plucky reporter Lucas on the show.
Possible plot: Spacey's devious Frank Underwood is no stranger to breaking the fourth wall, so why not have him take the show's "Machiavellian political theatre" literally with a fantasy sequence that involves him singing and dancing over the bodies of his enemies at the White House? It could be the next 1776!
Odds: Low. Not only did "Beyond the Sea" bomb, but Spacey's singing voice was lacerated by critics.
