‘Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness’ a widely popular doccie to come out this year will be airing on DStv.
The doccie takes viewers into the world of big cat owners, few stand out more than Joe Exotic, a mulleted, gun-toting polygamist and country western singer who presides over an Oklahoma roadside zoo.
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.
The doccie will air on Thursday, October 29 on ID (channel 171) at 21:50.
The series features 7 episodes directed by Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin – and executive produced by Chris Smith, Fisher Stevens, Goode and Chaiklin.
