'Ozark' Trailer: Jason Bateman Stars in Netflix's New Dramatic Series

Posted May 26, 2017

I love watching great television shows. They're starting to seem like the Joker in The Dark Knight, setting fire to massive piles of cash in a darkened warehouse for no reason other than that they enjoy the chaos of it all.

The Byrdes aren't bad people, they just did a bad thing. And yes, I'm fully aware that I've reached peak #firstworldproblems status: I'm actually angry about how many good new shows exist that I want to watch.

What you don't think of, when you think of Jason Bateman, is a dark character steeped in the criminal underworld, but that's all about to change. "Look around!" Wendy shouts at him, "this place is death!"

"Look at around!" she shouts in the first trailer released by Netflix.

Yet another very promising looking series is on its way to Netflix that will no doubt have you hooked.
