Behind the Scenes: The Creators and Stars of "Ozark"

Before the summer of 2017, "Ozark" simply referred to a lakeside region in Missouri. Today, it is a household name that has taken online streaming content to the next level. In just two short years, Netflix's hit series Ozark has received two Golden Globe nominations, five Emmy nominations, and five Screen Actors Guild Award nominations with Jason Bateman's win for "Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series." Ozark has set itself apart as one of Netflix's most popular streaming shows. What is the secret to Ozark's success? What role do partnerships between acting, directing, and producing giants with streaming platforms mean for the future of the industry? And what does Season 3 have in store for our favorite dysfunctional families—the Brydes, Langmores and Snells?
