I have never seen Tiger King, nor do I ever plan to see Tiger King, because I cannot stand to see animals in pain. I guess that means I have something in common with Carole Baskin because based on the one thing I know about her from watching Kate McKinnon in this new Joe vs. Carole trailer, she too is a crazy cat lady? Although she has Florida cat lady vibes which are completely different from Georgia cat lady vibes, which is what I have. Anyway, the trailer for Peacock’s new limited drama series dropped just now and it is both a hoot and a spectacle and that’s how you know it’s a Kate McKinnon project!
Here’s the official description of the series: “Based on the Wondery podcast Joe Exotic: Tiger King, hosted and reported by Robert Moor, the limited series will center on Carole Baskin, a big cat enthusiast, who learns that fellow exotic animal lover Joe ‘Exotic’ Schreibvogel is breeding and using his big cats for profit. She sets out to shut down his venture, inciting a quickly escalating rivalry. But Carole has a checkered past of her own and when the claws come out, Joe will stop at nothing to expose what he sees as her hypocrisy. The results prove dangerous.”
Also, Joe Exotic was recently sentenced to 21 years in prison, so I guess we know who wins this one?
All episodes of Joe vs. Carole will premiere on Peacock on Thursday, March 3.
