Jason Bateman Runs From Drug Lords In OZARK Teaser

Jason Bateman is a far cry from Arrested Development in the first teaser for his upcoming Netflix series OZARK. In the series, Bateman plays Marty Byrde, a father of two who has a fairly taxing job– he's the top money launderer for the second biggest drug cartel in Mexico. And, from the teaser, it looks like he wants to quit.

"Hypothetically, on a scale of one to 10, how difficult would it be for someone to disappear?" Marty asks at the start of the teaser. It's clear why he wants to take him, his wife (Laura Linney), and his teenage children Charlotte (Sofia Hublitz) and Jonah (Skylaer Gaertner) off the map, as death and violence seems to surround them, with drug lords and the police both hunting them down. "Look around," his wife says to him. "This place is death." 

OZARK comes from The Accountant's Bill Dubuque (who is also currently working on the script for Chris McKay's standalone Nightwing movie). Michael Mosley, Julia Garner, and Kevin L. Johnson also star in the series, which is due to premiere its ten one-hour episodes on Netflix on July 21. While we wait, see the other Netflix original shows that will blow you away this year.
