Netflix’s teaser for Ozark may be set to “America the Beautiful,” but it takes an ugly turn.
Jason Bateman stars as Chicago financial advisor Marty Bird, who has been laundering money for a drug kingpin, and must quickly uproot his family and move the operation to a resort mountain community in Missouri’s Ozarks after his partner is caught cheating the business.
There, he bumps heads with a local drug dealer and a clan of ruffians as he struggles to complete his laundering to save the life of his family.
Ozark also stars Laura Linney, Sofia Hublitz, Skylar Gaertner, Julia Garner, Jordana Spiro, Jason Butler Harner, Esai Morales, Peter Mullan and Lisa Emery.
Bateman directs and executive produces alongside directors Daniel Sackheim, Ellen Kuras and Andrew Bernstein, producer Patrick Markey and executive producers Chris Mundy, Bill Dubuque and Mark Williams.
The series is produced by Media Rights Capital and Aggregate Films. It premieres July 21 on Netflix.
