Okay so, I know we’re all kinda done with the “Tiger King” fad. BUT- Nerdbot seriously cannot wait to see “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” creator and star John Cameron Mitchell take on the role of Joe Exotic for Peacock.
Seriously! Now called “Joe vs. Carole,” the limited series pits JCM’s Exotic against “SNL” hero Kate McKinnon as Carole Baskin. (Also, Kyle MacLachlan as Carole’s husband, Howard.)
“JOE vs CAROLE is a scripted adaptation of the 2020 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.”
Anyhow, here’s the first teaser:
“Joe vs. Carole” will hit Peacock on March 3rd, 2022.
