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