Steven Van Zandt Wrote “LilyHammer” and stars in it. If he sounds familiar he played Silvio Dante on Sopranos! I discovered this series when Steven Van Zandt appeared on Wendy Williams last Week to promote for the second season. I figured I would check out because I was a huge fan of Sopranoes and the fact it was going to take place in Norway.Lilly Hammer is the First Netflix original series and yes they got a hit on the first try! I watched the whole first season in one day it was so mesmerizing and addicting. I advise all to check this series out once you start watching you wont be able to stop because of the non stop action & layered characters.
