New Netflix Series to be Set at Lake of the Ozarks Resort

Lianchen Liu

Alhonna Resort and Marina is a 60-unit waterfront resort at Lake of the Ozarks. It offers both hotel and apartment-style lodging. Guests can swim in the pool, rent boats or hang out at the bar. Alhonna isn't the most fancy or expensive resort at the lake — but it might soon become the most famous.

The resort's owner told the Springfield News-Leader that Alhonna helped inspire a new show coming to Netflix from Golden Globe-winning movie star Jason Bateman and the studio that made "House of Cards."

Shirley Gross-Russel, whose family has owned Alhonna since the 1980s, said the resort will be the setting for the TV series called "Ozark," in which Bateman will reportedly play a money launderer.
