ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- The Maryland Statehouse is providing the set for the Netflix show "House of Cards" this week.

The building was closed to the public on Monday, as actor Kevin Spacey and other actors filled the House of Delegates for filming. The building also is scheduled to be closed to the public on Tuesday. While the building is closed to the public, Maryland state government staff members are still working inside.

The House chamber has been made over to look like the U.S. Senate. Spacey plays a ruthless congressman in the show, which is filming its second season. "House of Cards" is set in Washington, about 30 miles from Annapolis.
