New Netflix Show to be Set in The Lake of the Ozarks
Do you have a favorite Netflix original show? I just finished up the new season of House of Cards over the weekend. It only took me three days to watch every episode of season four. According to Entertainment Weekly, a new show starring Jason Bateman, and set in The Lake of the Ozarks, could be coming to Netflix soon.
Entertainment Weekly reports that the series, called Ozark, is being produced by Bateman, the star of Arrested Development (and Teen Wolf Too!). The show "dives into the vicious world of drug-money laundering. The name is derived from the show’s setting, Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Bateman will direct, exec produce and star as a family man who moves from the city to the Lake of the Ozarks to begin repaying the money-laundering debt he owes to a ruthless drug lord."
Deadline says that the show is set to begin production in the spring. It is unclear how much, if any, of the show will actually be shot in Missouri locations.
