Netflix’s True-Crime Series ‘Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness’ Tells the Bizarre Story of Joe Exotic
Thursday, March 12, 2020
Tigers, hitmen, druglords, country music, cults, polygamy and more.
The series tells the unbelievable story of Joe Exotic, also known as Joseph Maldonado-Passage, who opened his own private zoo in Oklahoma after amassing a collection of over a thousand animals. To say that he had a love for animals would be an understatement. Besides having a colorful personality, with his blonde mullet and larger-than-life presence, Joe often found himself in trouble with the law, facing a $1 million USD lawsuit, a slew of animal abuse accusations and, most damning of all, two counts of murder-for-hire charges against one of his most vocal critics.
Found guilty earlier this year, Joe is currently serving a 22-year sentence, and the upcoming Netflix series details just exactly how he ended up in jail. Beyond the murder-for-hire charges, the show’s trailer offers a glimpse at all the bizarre chaos that surrounded Joe and the zoo — druglords, cults, magic shows, country music and polygamy, to mention a few. In a press release, Netflix shared a brief synopsis for the show: “Charismatic but misguided, Joe and an unbelievable cast of characters including drug kingpins, conmen, and cult leaders all share a passion for big cats, and the status and attention their dangerous menageries garner. But things take a dark turn when Carole Baskin, an animal activist and owner of a big cat sanctuary, threatens to put them out of business, stoking a rivalry that eventually leads to Joe’s arrest for a murder-for-hire plot and reveals a twisted tale where the only thing more dangerous than a big cat is its owner.”
