The two will combine their respective film and television slates, and also work closely together to develop and produce future projects that draw on both emerging talent and their deep bench of filmmaker and actor relationships.   ...Read More... https://www.thewrap.com/jason-batemans-aggregate-signs-film-and-tv-deal-with-netflix/

Ozark Star Laura Linney on Pushing Jason Bateman to Flesh Out Her Role: She Was Basically Just a Wife

A version of this interview with Laura Linney first appeared in The Race Begins issue of TheWraps Emmy magazine. In the Netflix series Ozark, Laura Linney plays one tough mother the wife of a Chicago financial adviser (Jason Bateman) who makes a single bad decision that leads him and his family down an increasingly dark and dubious path of Mexican drug cartel money laundering, murder and betrayal in the Ozarks. Linney stands by her man, and her family, at all costs. The Juilliard-trained, three-time Oscar nominee (for You Can Count on Me, Kinsey and Savages) spoke to TheWrap during a brief break from rehearsing Rona Munros My Name Is Lucy Barton, which will mark her debut on the London stage.   ...Read More... https://www.thewrap.com/ozark-laura-linney-bad-parent/

Weekend Binge Guide: March 2018

Have the weekend free? Going out is overrated! Binge-­watch one of these shows instead:   If you want to laugh:   Silicon Valley See all reviews for Silicon Valley Silicon Valley is loosely based on co-creator and executive producer Mike Judge's time as a Silicon Valley engineer in the 80s. The show focuses on engineer Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch), trying to strike it rich along with his friends with his genius compression algorithm and company, Pied Piper. The show is definitely littered with inside jokes about the Bay area and the tech industry, but it's also universally funny, even if you have zero familiarly with this space. There's just as many jokes about bad bosses, crazy coworkers, and corporate culture, which is something that anyone who has been in the working world can relate to. The show stars a bunch of familiar faces, including Martin Starr, Kumail Nanjiani (from The Big Sick , whose fame has certainly exploded since the show launched a few years ago), Zach Woods, and the often polarizing T.J. Miller, who departed at the end of season 4. Silicon Valley has aired 4 hilarious seasons and will be returning for a fifth at the end of this month.   If you want to scream:   Ozark See all reviews for Ozark Ozark stars Jason Bateman in the sort of role that he has played a few times now - the everyman who gets himself into a bad situation that rapidly spirals out of control. The bad situation this time around is as follows: Marty Byrde (Bateman) is a money manager who has been embezzling some money for a Mexican drug cartel (headed by Easi Morales). No biggie - he's doing what he has to to pay the bills - except that his partner has stolen from them and now Marty must make back all of the money (and more) or have him and his family (including the always excellent Laura Linney as his wife) be killed. This lands the family in Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri, where Marty convinces the cartel there's untapped resources and money to be made. The show will almost certainly remind Breaking Bad fans of that series, and while it's no Breaking Bad , it's definitely an effective thriller that was designed to be binged. It has also already been renewed for a second season.   If you want to cry:   Queer Eye See all reviews for Queer Eye I definitely let out an audible "Why would they do that?" groan when Netflix first announced they were reviving Queer Eye . The original Queer Eye née Queer Eye For the Straight Guy starred the Fab 5 men (who were gay, obviously), each with a somewhat stereotypical area of expertise (fashion, design, personal grooming, pop culture, and food). Yes, the show had its charm - and it was a pretty big hit for Bravo! - but did not seem like a good look for 2018. But! We shouldn't have doubted Netflix, or the show's creator, as this 8 episode reboot, which was released last month, is a huge improvement on the original, and a reminder and CELEBRATION of how far we've come since the early aughts. This show will make you feel things. Yes, the basic premise is still the same, however the participants have changed. It seems like less of a gimmick. This series has so much heart, and addresses everything from toxic masculinity to Black Lives Matter, and it actually *will* bring you to tears.   If you want to think:   Atlanta See all reviews for Atlanta Atlanta returns on March 1st for its eagerly awaited second season (the first season concluded way back in 2016), so now is the perfect time to binge season 1, whether or not you've already seen it. The show - created, written by, and starring Donald Glover, is very loosely based on Glover's own life. It focuses on 2 cousins - Earn (Glover) and Alfred/Paper Boi (played by Brian Tyree Henry) - who are on the verge of stardom in Atlanta. Paper Boi is an up-and-coming rapper, and Earn is a college dropout, trying to improve his own life, who convinces Alfred to let him manage his career. Glover has stated that the goal of the show is to show people what it's like to be black. It's truly unlike anything else on TV and it now has the awards - Emmys, Golden Globes, etc. - to prove it. Atlanta is classified as a comedy, although personally I found only a handful of episodes to be particularly comedic; however, this is not to say they weren't great, and they will certainly make you think.   div.post p { text-­align: justify; }

Ozark Renewed for Season 2 on Netflix: What Will Happen?

If youve been watching this show then you already know its one of the more messed up series on Netflix as of now. Its got more twists in it than the average French braid and each one leads to a deadly place that you dont want to contemplate. But somehow Marty, the main character and the only guy you might feel is worth rooting for at this point, is managing to keep his head just above water and still attached to his shoulders. How much longer that might be is anyones guess, but chances are that if anyones going to   ...Read More... //www.tvovermind.com/tv-news/ozark-renewed-season-2-netflix-will-happen
