Ozark, starring Jason Bateman & Laura Linney, was produced by Media Rights Capital (MRC) and presented by Netflix. Semanoff had the pleasure of directing two exciting episodes. The first of which was Ep.209, The Badger, in which tensions between Darlene Snell and her husband Jacob reach a boiling point. It’s an honor when a director gets to craft a characters exit from a series, and Jacob’s character was a great one!

Semanoff would return the subsequent season to direct Ep. 306, Su Casa es Mi Casa, which would earn him an Emmy Nomination for Outstanding Directing in 2020. This episode begins with an intense argument between Marty and Wendy, revealing a little too much about the true nature of their business to their therapist, and resulting in Marty moving out of the house.
