Set at a Lake of the Ozarks resort, “Ozark” with Jason Bateman looks to be one of the biggest hits of the summer if not the year.
Get your binging schedule ready! “Ozark” is set to debut on midnight Friday.
In the show, Jason Bateman plays Marty Byrd, a drug cartel money launderer who has to escape the suburbs of Chicago to the Show-Me State with his wife and family.
While most of the series was shot in Georgia, some of it was shot at the lake with all the producers and writers on board. The screenwriter Bill Dubuque actually grew up and still lives outside St. Louis. He’s spent many summers at the Lake of the Ozarks.
