The project was first announced in May 2020, at the height of the Netflix series ‘Tiger King’. After that, there was a suspicious calm around the series and it now appears that Amazon is no longer officially interested in marketing the story. This was confirmed by Nicholas Cage, who planned to play the main role in the eight-part series. “I read two different scripts and they were really excellent, but for Amazon the story is a thing of the past. It just doesn’t really matter anymore,” Cage said in an interview with Variety. For the actor it was his first time playing a role in a series TV show.
CBS Studios, the company that was going to produce the series, has no intention of giving up. It is likely that they will now try to sell their project to other interested parties. CBS Studios isn’t the only company with “episodic” plans about the face of “Tiger King” Joe Exotic. Universal Content Productions is also planning a similar project. Below are the main roles of Carol Baskin, Joe Exotic, Kate McKinnon and John Cameron Mitchell. The story itself is based on Wondery’s “Joe Exotic” podcast.
