Jason Bateman’s Netflix Drug-Cartel Drama Is Called ‘Ozark’ And Gives Serious ‘Breaking Bad’ Vibes

By 05.26.17

Did you hear the news? Arrested Development is coming back to Netflix for Season 5! But Jason Bateman has a new project in the pipeline that will hit first — It’s called Ozark and it’s much more nefarious than his role as Michael Bluth. Jason Bateman wrote, directed, produced, and stars in the drug-drama with Laura Linney. The logline gives serious Breaking Bad vibes:

The Byrdes, husband and wife Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy (Laura Linney), their teenage kids Charlotte (Sofia Hublitz) and Jonah (Skylar Gaertner) — are for all intents and purposes an ordinary family. Ordinary save for Marty’s job: The top money launderer for the second largest drug cartel in Mexico.

As a huge fan of Narcos, I can’t wait for this. Drops July 21 on Netflix.
