“Ozark” tells the story of how Byrde and his family move from Chicago to the Missouri Ozarks in a potentially lifesaving bid to launder millions of dollars for a Mexican drug cartel.

Variety reported that Bateman and “Ozark” co-star made an estimate of $300,000 for each episode in 2017, when the show was in its first of its three seasons.

Bateman got his start acting in commercials in the 70s before landing a role as James Cooper Ingalls on “Little House on the Prairie,” in 1981, he explained in a “Career Timeline” posted by Vanity Fair in 2018.

WHAT IS MONEY LAUNDERING?

After that, he made his way onto the TV circuit with “Silver Spoons,” “It’s Your Move,” and a role on an episode of “Knight Rider.” One of his favorite jobs so far, he said, was his role on a show that ran from 1986 to 1991 and went by several names over the time it aired, starting with the title “Valerie,” but what ended up as “The Hogan Family.”

“That was my first chance to direct,” he recalled. “It was a lot of fun and very challenging to work out the puzzle of making sure each camera is pointed at the next actor who is about to speak. It was a lot of fun to not drop the ball for all these adults that were working there, giving this kid this responsibility.”
