Where was Ozark filmed?

Ozark Where filmed
Welcome to the Lake of the Ozarks or the redneck riviera, according to the main character of this new Netflix production. Marty is a financial advisor in trouble, forced to launder money to save his family and his skin from the hands of a drug Mexican cartel.

The series, that has been compared to Breaking Bad, is starring Jason Bateman (Arrested Development, Horrible Bosses), Laura Linney (The Truman Show, Mystic River), and the young actresses Sofia Hublitz and Julia Garner.

Actually the area has a much more inspiring nickname: the Missouri Magic Dragon due to the aerial look of this large reservoir. However, very little was actually filmed in Missouri; Georgia's state tax incentives for filming moved the headquarters of this production at less than an hour distance from Atlanta.
