need a Sopranos-ish fix? look no further, Steven Van Zandt has a new show 'Lilyhammer' which is Netflix
exclusive in the US, but will be on TV here. I just saw an ad for this on SBS 1 saying its coming soon -



I had heard he had a new show but forgot the name.

I'm glad we are getting this on FTA. It has a really high user rating on a TV site I go to, but I have never heard anyone talk about it.

I wonder if this means we will get the new Arrested Development shows on TV?

Yes, finally!

Airdate: Lilyhammer

Quirky Norwegian series Lilyhammer begins on SBS ONE later this month.

This 8-part series ranked as the most-watched show on Norwegian TV and it tells the tale of a New York mobster hiding out in the town he remembers from the 1994 Winter Olympics.

It stars Steven Van Zandt from The Sopranos, who also plays in Bruce Springsteen’s E-Street band.

Mafia underboss Frank ‘The Fixer’ Tagliano (Van Zandt) is forced to enter the witness protection program after testifying against his associates. He is given a new identity and relocated to Lillehammer, a town of his choosing after being intrigued by the area when watching it on television during the 1994 Winter Olympics.

Lillehammer is a sleepy town in Norway, where cultural differences soon become apparent. Frank has visions of a paradise of “clean air, fresh white snow and gorgeous broads”, far away from the temptations of the Big Apple and from mob hit men. The reality turns out to be spectacularly different as his attempts to settle in include bribing a government official, romancing a fellow newcomer and hunting a deadly wolf.

Episode One: Reality Check

After being targeted by mob boss Aldo Delucci, Frank ‘The Fixer’ Tagliano testifies against the mob and is relocated to Norway as part of his deal. Becoming the Norwegian citizen Giovanni Henriksen, he soon meets his new neighbour, the chief of police, and clashes with his new country’s bureaucratic culture.


Saturday, 30 March at 8.35pm on SBS ONE
