This episode of Welcome To The Party Pal celebrates the fourth season of Ozark, the American crime drama television series created by Bill Dubuque and Mark Williams for Netflix. The series stars Jason Bateman and Laura Linney as Marty and Wendy Byrde, a married couple who relocate their family to the Lake of the Ozarks for money laundering. Bateman also serves as a director and executive producer for the series. In June 2020, the series was renewed for a fourth and final season, which will consist of fourteen episodes split into two parts; the first part was released on January 21, 2022 and that seven episode arc is the focus of this episode. Throughout this podcast host Michael Shields, with the help of artist and film enthusiast Lindsay Paul Hanners, explore the themes and intense action present in Season 4 before looking forward to might be awaiting when Ozark returns for it’s final act.
Lindsay Paul Hanners is an artist based out of “The Triangle” in North Carolina. He went to film school alongside the batch of filmmakers that established ‘Rough House Pictures’, including David Gordon Green, Danny McBride, and Jody Hill. ‘Mare of Easttown’ director Craig Zobel was an on-set mentor during production of his freshman 5 minute film. As a musician, he’s worked extensively with Chapel Hill’s Mount Moriah and Durham’s Big Hell. His time in the editing room inspired his current immersion into the craft of music production, spawning a widening range of projects that are in the preemptive phases of writing and recording, including his solo work under the name ‘Inhabitant’. As a writer, he has contributed a small handful of personal works to the Across The Margin website over the last decade, including a deep dive into film noir collaborating to deconstruct the perpetually infernal sixth season of AMC’s Mad Men. Acutely aware of the horrors of the film business, he has outlined over a hundred film and television ideas and rarely presents any of it to anyone, including a seven season stretching story of a female serial killer. Like many of us, Paul likes a good show that you can watch over and over again.
