The show: New York Mafioso Frank "The Fixer" Tagliano joins the witness protection program after testifying at a trial and finds himself relocated to Lillehammer, Norway. Despite the chance to start anew, he quickly takes up his old, underhanded ways, using blackmail and violence to orchestrate deals and get ahead.
The cast and crew: The Sopranos' Steven Van Zandt as Tagliano; Trond Fausa Aurvag as Tagliano's business partner, and Marian Saastad Otteson as Tagliano's girlfriend.
The status: Season One premiered last February. Ted Sarandos, Netflix's Chief Content Officer, has confirmed the show will return.
What they're saying: "Bumbling about in thick clothes, listening to tapes that teach him the Norwegian for "Sorry, we are out of bread" and "I have no mittens," Van Zandt -- who reliably lightened the tone at The Sopranos -- turns in a charming, semi-sweet performance as a person not quite starting fresh." -- Robert Lloyd, The Los Angeles Times
