Just a heads up though, If you haven’t finished the first season, the interview does contain some spoilers.
Ozark is a money-eccentric present day story revolves around financial planner Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney) and their family’s sudden relocation from the suburbs of Chicago to a summer resort community at the Lake of the Ozarks. Rather than the familiar skyscrapers and trading floors, Ozark explores capitalism, family dynamics, and survival through the eyes of (anything but) ordinary Americans.
The series is produced by Bateman’s Aggregate Films in association with Media Rights Capital for Netflix, and was created by Dubuque and Williams.
Bateman also stars in the comedy, Arrested Development, which has also been picked up for a second season by Netflix
