The strange world of Joe Exotic is too big for just Netflix’s Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness to contain. That’s why ID has announced a new project that will explore everyone’s favorite tiger king called Investigating the Strange World of Joe Exotic.
ID’s new limited series will delve further into the world of both former G.W. Zoo owner Joe Exotic and his nemesis, Carole Baskin. ID reports that this sequel will feature never-before-seen footage from Joe himself (guess something must have survived that studio fire?) and will look into the question at the forefront of Tiger King viewers’ minds: did Carole Baskin kill her husband, Don Lewis?
Investigating the Strange World of Joe Exotic will also check into other secrets from Joe’s past, as well as whatever other skeletons Jeff Lowe and Doc Antle most surely have in their respective closets. The series is being produced by Conveyor Media with Theresa McKeown & Colin Whelan as Executive Producers and Rebecca Sirmons as Co-Executive Producer.
“Viewers are understandably riveted by Netflix’s Tiger King, but the millions of true crime fans around the world were left wanting more,” Henry Schleiff, Group President ID, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel and Destination America said via press release. “ID is the perfect place to find the inevitable sequel to this drama – featuring a missing husband, a hit man, and the illegal business of exotic animals. It’s time to let the cat out of the bag and address the lingering questions that viewers demand be answered.”
