Jason Bateman is back on Netflix, but this time it’s not with the Bluth family
— and it’s definitely not a comedy.
He’s stars alongside Laura Linney in “Ozark,” and Netflix just released a gripping new trailer.
Bateman plays Marty, a financial planner, and Linney plays his wife, Wendy. They suddenly uproot their family from the suburbs of Chicago to a resort community in the Missouri Ozarks (hey, that’s the title of the show!). And it turns out they’re on the run from a drug lord.
Things look like they get really dark over the 10-episode first season, and unfortunately for Marty, there’s definitely no money hidden in any banana stands.
Set to debut on July 21, “Ozark” is the first series regular role for Bateman since “Arrested Development.” It’s also Linney’s first TV role since Showtime’s “The Big C” ended in 2013. Chris Mundy (“Hell on Wheels,” “Criminal Minds”) serves as the showrunner.
