Netflix have this week released a brand new, first look clip for their upcoming original series Ozark, starring Jason Bateman as Marty Byrde and Laura Linney as his wife, Wendy. You can check out the clip below:
Also serving as an executive producer and director on the series, Bateman’s new show tells the story of the Byrde family; a very ordinary family with normal lives, which also includes teenage kids Charlotte and Jonah. What most don’t know about Marty however is that his job as a Chicago financial advisor sees him also serve as the top money launderer for the second largest drug cartel in Mexico.
Of course, as with all good drama series, things start to go wrong and Marty must uproot his family, take them away from Chicago and relocate them in the lazy lake region of Missouri Ozarks.
Also starring Esai Morales, Julia Garner, Marc Menchaca, Jason Butler Harner and Harris Yulin, this dark drama will explore the topics of capitalism, family and survival through the Byrde family’s eyes.
Ozark launches globally on Netflix a little later this year, with all episodes of season 1 available from July 21, 2017.
