Carole Baskin of ‘Tiger King’ Gets Her Own Show

  • September 22, 2020

The show is in the development phase, and the production company will soon meet with networks and streaming services to pitch it, Thinkfactory Media said.

The company has previously worked to bring other shows to networks, including, “Mama June: From Not to Hot,” “Gene Simmons Family Jewels” and “Dog and Beth: Fight of Their Lives.”

Ms. Baskin and her husband gained attention in March, as much of the country was homebound during the coronavirus pandemic and millions of viewers were drawn to “Tiger King.” The documentary followed Ms. Baskin, an animal rights activist, and Joseph Maldonado-Passage (Joe Exotic), the flamboyant owner of a lion and tiger zoo in Wynnewood, Okla., through their long-lasting feud.

In 2019, Mr. Maldonado-Passage was convicted of trying to have Ms. Baskin killed. In June, a federal court judge in Oklahoma ruled that Ms. Baskin’s organization, Big Cat Rescue Corporation, could take over the site of Mr. Maldonado-Passage’s former zoo.

Ms. Baskin has denied any role in the disappearance of Don Lewis, her former husband, who was mentioned several times in the show. Mr. Lewis disappeared in 1997, and the case was never officially closed.
