ET Canada has your exclusive first look at Jason Bateman and Laura Linney in their new Netflix series “Ozark”.
The 10-episode drama centres on a financial planner named Marty (Bateman) and his wife, Wendy (Linney) and their family’s sudden relocation from suburban Chicago to a summer resort community in the Missouri Ozarks. But this is no relaxing family vacation. The dark, money-centric story trades in the familiar big city skyscrapers and trading floors for a look at capitalism, family dynamics and survival through the eyes of anything-but-ordinary Americans in the Ozarks.
While Bateman has become synonymous with comedies after four seasons of “Arrested Development” and movies like “Horrible Bosses”, this is definitely a darker performance than his norm.
“Hypothetically, on a scale of one to 10, how difficult would it be for someone to disappear? A family of four,” his character Marty asks in the teaser, setting the tone for the dark drama.
