First Look: Netflix Original Series 'Ozark' Starring Jason Bateman
Netflix released the trailer for their newest original series Ozark, a crime drama about seemingly good people who do bad things. Wait, isn't that Bloodline? Yes, but these 'people doing bad things' are mixed up with a drug cartel in Mexico! Okay, so on paper it feels like a cross between Bloodline and Breaking Bad, which by all accounts is a fair but unofficial value proposition.
Ozark stars Jason Bateman and Laura Linney and is co-created by Bill Dubuque and Mark Williams, the same team behind The Accountant. Here's the official plot synopsis:
"The Byrdes, husband and wife Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy (Laura Linney), their teenage kids Charlotte (Sofia Hublitz) and Jonah (Skylar Gaertner) — are for all intents and purposes an ordinary family. Ordinary save for Marty’s job: The top money launderer for the second largest drug cartel in Mexico."
