Lilyhammer season one was a huge hit world wide. The New York gangster Frank Tagliano, played by Steven Van Zandt, is under witness protection in Lillehammer, Norway.
He´s a long way from home, but seems be doing well as a successful nightclub owner. Although he does bend the rules.
The series is a weird, yet delightful mix of American and Norwegian culture and how it sometimes clashes.
Season two has a larger budget, and you can really see and hear the difference. Great storylines and great actors. Stunning team work!
Being a Netflix original series, Lilyhammer has been sold to over 150 territories world wide! That is an impressive achievement!
I just wrapped up doing the final online for the entire season two (8 x episodes), which included client sessions for last minute image fixes and a bit of compositing.
I also graded 35 minutes of internal promotional material for the series and a large number still images for the press kit.
Simen Alsvik is the conceptual director, and Johan-Fredrik Bødtker is the conceptual cinematographer.
The complete series is shot on Arri Alexa to Prores4444 Log-C, and is beautifully graded by senior colorist Julien Alary.
Season 2 is currently airing on Norwegian national TV (NRK).
Netflix releases the complete series 13th of December 2013.
Be sure to check it out, it´s great work and extremely entertaining!
For Norwegian viewers, the series is availble online via NRK.
