In an effort to expand its slate of quality TV series, Netflix has once again teamed up with director, producer and Ozark star Jason Bateman for a brand new limited series called Black Rabbit. The series will star Bateman himself along with Fantastic Beasts star Jude Law.
The episodes of the new limited series will be directed by Bateman himself, who directed a number of episodes of his previous hit Netflix series Ozark, for which he was nominated for an Emmy. The scripts for Black Rabbit were written by Zach Baylin, who got wide acclaim for his script for the Will Smith starring movie King Richard, and his wife and creative partner Kate Susman, for whom Black Rabbit will be a screenwriting debut.
The drama, announced in October 2022, hails from Bateman and Michael Costigan’s Aggregate Films, Law and Ben Jackson’s Riff Raff Entertainment, Zach Baylin and Kate Susman’s Youngblood Pictures and Automatik Entertainment.
This is one of many projects coming from Bateman and his production company. Other notable projects include Florida Man, Dark Wire, Here Comes the Flood, Movie Night, and many more.
