The trailer for Netflix's first original series, Lilyhammer, is out, and while we can't be totally sure, it looks like it may be a pretty good show! I mean, it's Stevie Van Zandt and guns and Scandinavia.
The first Netflix original series won't be the Kevin Spacey/David Fincher vehicle we heard about last year. Lilyhammer has guns, tension, and even a few laughs. We're certainly excited. From the description on Netflix:
After he testifies against a Mafia boss, ex-gangster Frank Tagliano enters the witness protection program and asks to be sent to Norway. Despite the peaceful surroundings, it's not long before Frank strays from the straight and narrow.
Netflix ended last year in a rough spot. Like really bad—like desperately needing to get its shit together bad. This trailer bodes well for a better year. The first eight episodes of Lilyhammer will be up on Netflix streaming on February 6. [SAI]
