In the past few years, there have been only a handful of shows that were truly great. Shows that make one dive deep into the narration and storyline, to get in touch with each of the characters personally. And that is exactly what Netflix’s crime drama series Ozark did. Seeing the show succeed the way it has in the past years, it is natural to question the process of the show’s making. And to share this experience and process, actors, directors, and writer all came together.
Here is what Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Chris Mundy, and Julia Garner had to say about the show, its atmosphere, and how it felt to work on it.
Jason Bateman and Chris Mundy share their thoughts on Ozark
It is no overstatement if we say that Ozark is one of the best shows of the recent times. Hence, to work on the Netflix Original can truly be considered a lucky chance. The show’s writer Chris Mundy has exactly the same feeling about the show. “It is not very often that you realize in real time how lucky you are to be getting to do something,” said Mundy.
Jason Bateman is one of the most important people when it comes to Ozark. He acted in and directed the thriller series. Thus, it is also important to see what vision he has of the show. While talking about the series, Bateman said, “This has stayed really true to what i always thought and dreamed that it would be.” He even called the show “a real team sport“.
The collaborative environment on the show
A key aspect to any show’s success is how it allows everyone to be a part of the process. While talking about Ozark, actress Laura Linney praised the environment a lot. Linney called it “the most collaborative environment” of all the shows she has worked on. Julia Garner, who recently starred in Inventing Anna has been an integral part of the show as well. While talking about it, she revealed how the show changed her life both professionally and personally.
