"Lilyhammer," a fish-out-of-water story set in Norway and starring "The Sopranos" mainstay Steven Van Zandt, premieres on Netflix on February 6th.
Van Zandt, also a guitarist in Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, plays Frank Tagliano who is a former member of the New York mob. After testifying in a trial in the United States, Tagliano is relocated to Lillehammer in Norway through the FBI's witness protection program.
Tagliano decides to start a new life in Lillehammer Norway after seeing television images of the Winter Olympics in 1994. The story follows his transition from being a feared and respected gangster in New York to being an unemployed immigrant in Norway. The former mob member, however, quickly discovers that to get up and in the Norwegian rural society, he must resort to the old, ruthless methods.
Netflix subscribers will be able to watch all eight episodes of the shows first season immediately beginning February 6th.
