Netflix has released the latest trailer for “Ozark,” which looks set to test the theory that Jason Bateman may be better at drama than he is at comedy (see also “The Gift”). The “Arrested Development” star also serves as executive producer and director on several episodes of the show. Watch the trailer below.
Here’s the synopsis, which hints at much grittiness:
“A Chicago financial advisor, who has been quietly laundering money for a drug kingpin, must quickly uproot his family and move the operation to the Ozarks after his partner is caught cheating the business. There, he bumps heads with both a local drug dealer whose business he inadvertently interrupts, and a clan of ruffians, led by their 19-year-old niece, who want his money, all the while avoiding the eye of a tenacious FBI agent. He must complete his laundering to save the life of his family, as they struggle to find their own path in this seemingly foreign way of life.”
Laura Linney, Sofia Hublitz, Skylar Gaertner, Julia Garner, Jordana Spiro and Peter Mullan co-star in the show. “Ozark” premieres on Netflix on July 21.
