A Netflix Original you say? But won’t that be cheap, tacky, and have a woefully low budget? No, as it turns out.
This is the official trailer for Lilyhammer, a new show coming exclusively to Netflix, which financed the series. Netflix is the DVDs-by-mail company that now also streams content.
Lilyhammer is the first show Netflix has produced, with House of Cards and Arrested Development expected to follow. Shockingly, it looks pretty damn good.
Steven van Zandt plays a character who chooses Norway as his new residence. But he doesn’t quite manage to turn over a new leaf in the town that hosted the 1994 Winter Olympics.
Lilyhammer will be available to watch on Netflix from Feb. 6, 2012.
