Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012
I haven't watched it, but Netflix's first original series Lilyhammer is available. Here's there description:
After he testifies against a Mafia boss, ex-gangster Frank Tagliano enters the witness protection program and asks to be sent to Norway. Despite the peaceful surroundings, it's not long before Frank strays from the straight and narrow.
The mobster is played Steven Van Zandt from The Sopranos, and the rest of the cast appear to be Norwegian.
Over the course of many encounters and many years, I have successfully developed a standard operating procedure for dealing with big, nasty monsters. Run away. Me and Monty Python.
