We asked financial advisers: How realistic is Netflix’s new show ‘Ozark’?

“Scratch. Wampum. Dough. Sugar. Clams. Loot. Bills. Bones. Bread. Bucks. Money. That which separates the haves from the have-nots. But what is money?”

Right from the opening monologue, narrated by star Jason Bateman, Netflix’s NFLX, +0.54% new drama “Ozark” makes clear it doesn’t just want to depict a financial adviser up to his neck in danger. It’s out to convey profound truths about money.

Netflix premiered “Ozark” last week to decent reviews, and while the streaming giant doesn’t release audience data, reactions on social media show that “Ozark” is finding an audience.

The show stars “Arrested Development” actor Bateman as Marty Byrde, a Chicago-based financial adviser who relocates with his wife, played by Laura Linney, and children to the Lake of the Ozarks region in Missouri, after his business partner skims millions from the second-largest Mexican drugs cartel.
