The world’s latest obsession is Netflix documentary series Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness, the story of private zoo owner Joe Exotic and his long running feud with Big Cat Rescue founder Carole Baskin which ends in a murder-for-hire plot and a 22 year prison sentence for Joe.
It’s genuinely one of the strangest, most fascinating stories to land on the streaming service – if you haven’t caught it yet, you really must.
At the end of the doc Joe was in prison, Jeff Lowe owned the zoo and was planning to transport the animals to a new location in Oklahoma and Carole was happily running Big Cat Rescue and campaigning to prevent cub petting, no longer at immediate risk of being assassinated.
Now an additional episode, entitled The Tiger King and I, has landed on Netflix. It’s hosted by Community‘s Joel McHale and is billed as an ‘aftershow’, featuring new interviews, done remotely during lockdown, with various key people from the doc including zoo owners Jeff and Lauren Lowe, Joe’s ex-husband John Finlay and Joe’s TV show producer Rick Kirkham.
