Netflix's new dramatic series Ozark, starring, executive produced and directed by Jason Bateman (Arrested Development), has released a new teaser trailer ahead of the show's July 21 premiere. Described as set in the dark and dangerous modern world of drug-money laundering, Ozark introduces us to financial planner Marty Byrde (Bateman), his wife Wendy (Laura Linney, The Big C) and their family's sudden relocation from their home in the Chicago suburbs to a summer resort community in The Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri. Removed from their familiar city surroundings, the family must adjust to a new and anything-but-ordinary environment…while shadows from Chicago are following close behind.
From Netflix's description: "A financial adviser drags his family from Chicago to the Missouri Ozarks, where he must launder $500 million in five years to appease a drug boss."

Ozark also stars Julia Garner (Sin City: A Dame To Kill For) as Ruth; Sofia Hublitz (Louie) as Charlotte Byrde; Skylar Gaertner (Daredevil) as Jonah Byrde; Michael Mosley (Hot Pursuit) as Pastor Mason Young; and Kevin L. Johnson (American Made) as Sam Dermody.
Since initially leaving television for film, Bateman has only returned to regular series television to reprise his Emmy-nominated role Michael Bluth for Netflix's revival of Arrested Development. Bateman recently premiered his second directorial feature, The Family Fang, at the Toronto Film Festival. Bateman directed and starred in the comedy-drama with Nicole Kidman and Christopher Walken, based on Kevin Wilson's 2011 novel of the same name.
