Watch Jason Bateman and Laura Linney in the full Ozark trailer
Netflix has just brought online the full Ozark trailer. In the player below, you can take a look at the new drama starring Jason Bateman (Arrested Development, The Gift) and Laura Linney (The Truman Show, The Savages).
Bateman, who also serves as an executive producer and director on Ozark, stars as Marty Byrde with Linney playing his wife, Wendy. Marty is a Chicago financial advisor who has been quietly laundering money for a drug kingpin, must quickly uproot his kids and move the operation to The Ozarks, after his partner is caught cheating the business. There, he bumps heads with both a local drug dealer whose business he inadvertently interrupts, and a clan of ruffians, led by their 19-year-old niece, who want his money, all the while avoiding the eye of a tenacious FBI agent. He must complete his laundering, to save the life of his family, as they struggle to find their own path in this seemingly foreign way of life.
This dark drama, which also stars Esai Morales (Chicago P.D., NYPD Blue), Julia Garner (The Americans, We Are What We Are), Marc Menchaca (Homeland, Generation Kill), Jason Butler Harner (Ray Donovan, Alcatraz) and Harris Yulin (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, 24), explores capitalism, family dynamics and survival through the eyes of (anything but) ordinary Americans.
Bateman, who previously helmed the feature films Bad Words and The Family Fang, himself directed the Ozark pilot.
Created by Bill Dubuque (The Judge, The Accountant), the series premieres on July 21 on Netflix with 10 hour-long episodes.
