Jason Bateman Ozark Drama

There’s always money in the banana stand, and that’s really going to help Jason Bateman in his next role.

The Arrested Development actor has signed on to exec-produce, direct and star in Ozark, a drama series currently being shopped to premium cable and digital outlets.

Though details of the hour-long project are being kept under wraps, our sister site Deadline reports that Ozark — which is set in Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks — focuses on the dark and dangerous world of drug-money laundering.

Ozark will begin production in Spring 2016.
