Jason Bateman Grimly Salutes America In New OZARK Teaser

Jason Bateman is getting in the fourth of July spirit in the new 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. When things start to go awry at work, Marty is forced to take his family on the run to the Ozarks, where they must not only adjust to the rural way of life, but also deal with local gangsters and the FBI.

The teaser begins by showing the happier parts of Marty's life, using the tune of "God Bless America" to underscore scenes of him playing with his children and being happy. It quickly flips, though, showing him finding a dead body and his wife scrubbing away blood in their home. "This summer, discover your last resort," the teaser reads.

OZARK comes from The Accountant's Bill Dubuque (who is also currently working on the script for Chris McKay's standalone Nightwing movie). Laura Linney, Sofia Hublitz, Skylaer Gaertner, 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 some upcoming Netflix originals you didn't know were being made.
