Joe Exotic

Joe vs Carole—based on the Wondery podcast Joe Exotic: Tiger King, hosted and reported by Robert Moor— centers on Carole, a big-cat enthusiast who learns that fellow exotic-animal lover Joe 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.

Baskin and Schreibvogel are real-life people who were featured in Netflix’s true-crime documentary Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness released in 2020. Schreibvogel is currently in prison serving 21 years for his role in the murder-for-hire plot against Baskin and crimes against the exotic animals he abused when he owned the now-defunct G.W. Zoo in Wynnewood, Oklahoma.
