The "Albert Nobbs" and "The White Queen" actress will play a "Chicago-based attorney with links to the cartel. In making a deal with the devil, she becomes a potential threat to the Byrdes," the streaming giant said in a news release.
The show casts Bateman as a financial adviser Marty Byrde, "who has been quietly laundering money for a drug kingpin [played by Esai Morales,] and must quickly uproot his wife and children [played by Sofia Hublitz and Skylar Gaertner] and move the operation to The Ozarks, after his partner is caught cheating the business."
