It's fitting that the announcement came from Bateman – he's not just the star, he's directed episodes and serves as an executive producer.
Speaking about the project when the series was first announced, Bateman said: "It's a drama.
It's kind of a dark, dangerous show about a money launderer for a drug cartel."He added: "I'm going to [direct] the first two and probably the last two out of the ten.

And he set the tone so beautifully for the first two episodes, and let us out on the other end with the last two episodes.""When someone is as invested as Jason is with this show, it ups the quality, all the way around.
Everyone wants it to be good, and everyone wants it to be good for him.
He's a wonderful director." The finale saw the launch of Marty's giant casino boat, which is going to be used to launder hundreds of millions of dollars for the Mexican drug cartel.
Expect a lot of season three to take place on that boat.
Oh, and we've still got to solve Cade Langmore's murder plot, with a whole host of possible suspects, including his daughter Ruth, his nephew Wyatt, and Marty.
Seeing as Cade had just murdered policeman Roy Petty, the law will be all over the Ozarks next season – that could make things complicated for Marty.
Expect female empowerment in general in the third season, especially as Laura Linney's Wendy looks set to go all Walter White (Wendy White?
