Netflix just released a trailer for it's upcoming original series Lilyhammer and all I can say is wow. Never mind the fact that they managed to get E street guitar legend and beloved Sopranos co-star Steven Van Zandt as the lead character, the story looks awesome! Here's a summary from IMDB:
Frank Tagliano (Steven Van Zandt), is a former member of the New York mob. After testifying in a trial in the United States, Tagliano is relocated to Lilyhammer in Norway through the FBI's witness protection program. Frank Tagliano was intrigued by Lilyhammer when he saw television images of the Winter Olympics in 1994, and therefore chooses to start his new life there. The transition from being a feared and respected gangster in New York, to become an unemployed immigrant in Norway, is not simple. Frank discovers that to get up and in the Norwegian rural society, he must resort to the old, ruthless methods.
The trailer (look out below) is classic Zandt. A couple laughs, womanizing, violence, and all around badassery to be had. Watch it now, and save the date for the series premiere February 6th on Netflix.
