Their first show, Lilyhammer, is now available. Lilyhammer is a story about a former mob guy, played by Steve Van Zandt, from Sopranos and Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band. After a life as a New York mobster Van Zandt’s character moves to Norway to start over.
Needless to say this show is a big hit in Norway where it’s already getting 1.2 million viewers each week. Theverge has found out that Lilyhammer is not available to UK Netflix users but it is available in the United States. It’s a web series of sorts with 8 minute episodes.
Netflix had over 2 billion hours of streaming in Q4. That’s an impressive number but Netflix is still hoping to improve on that with the introduction of their own produced content.
