Ozark looks to be a fascinating new drama from Netflix, starring Jason Bateman (Horrible Bosses) as Marty Byrde, alongside Academy Award nominee Laura Linney as his wife Wendy. Bateman also serves as an executive producer and director.
In Ozark, The Byrdes and their teenage kids, Charlotte and Jonah, are, for all intents and purposes, an ordinary family with ordinary lives. Except for the job of Marty, a Chicago financial advisor who also serves as the top money launderer for the second largest drug cartel in Mexico. When things go awry, Marty must uproot his family from the skyscrapers of Chicago and relocate to the lazy lake region of the Missouri Ozarks…
This dark drama, which also stars Esai Morales, Julia Garner, Marc Menchaca, Jason Butler Harner and Harris Yulin, explores capitalism, family dynamics and survival through the eyes of (anything but) ordinary Americans.
Ozark‘s first season comprises of ten episodes and the Byrdes move in on July 21st.
