A new drama series from Jason Bateman has landed at Netflix. Bateman will star in, executive produce and direct “Ozark,” Deadline.com reports.
The project, which has been in talks at Netflix for a couple of months, is produced by MRC and Aggregate.
“In his return to television and Netflix, ‘Arrested Development’ star Bateman is taking a dramatic turn with Ozark, created by rising feature writer Bill Dubuque (‘The Judge’), which takes place in the dark and dangerous world of drug-money laundering,” Deadline reports. “The series takes its name from the location where it is set, The Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri.”
