Jason Bateman teams up with the ‘House of Cards’ team to bring us a new Netflix Original ‘Ozarks.’
Bateman will direct and serve as an executive producer on the ‘Ozarks.’
The new drama series takes place in the dark and dangerous world of drug-money laundering. The series takes its name from the location where it is set, The Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri.
Netflix first original series, House of Cards, took a dark gritty look at American politics (a spin-off from a British show) so if the featured content is drug running and money laundering I can only imagine how dark the series could get.
The Ozarks may do for Lake of the Ozarks what Breaking Bad did for Albuquerque, New Mexico. It definitely has a Breaking Bad feeling to it.
Check out the official synopsis and trailer below!
