Netflix has announced the renewal of its licensing deal for all three seasons of the acclaimed international hit crime comedy drama Lilyhammer.
Lilyhammer stars longtime E Street Band member Steven Van Zandt (who also produced, wrote, directed, and served as music supervisor) as a mobster who relocates to rural Norway after entering the witness protection program.
“I am very proud of Lilyhammer being not just the first original show on Netflix, but the first truly international show, with subtitles and a completely Norwegian cast and crew except for me, helping establish Netflix as the first truly international entertainment company,” Van Zandt said.
Lilyhammer was created by Eilif Skodvin and Anne Bjørnstad, and produced by Rubicon TV for Netflix/NRK. In addition to Van Zandt, it starred Trond Fausa, Steinar Sagen, Marian Saastad Ottesen, Tommy Karlsen, Fridtjov Såheim, Robert Skjærstad, and Nils Jørgen Kaalstad. Lilyhammer is distributed by Red Arrow Studios International
