A seven-part series based on a podcast, Tiger King follows the prolific war which erupts between Exotic and Baskin.
Where Exotic once ran a 16-acre private zoo, Baskin would accuse Exotic of animal abuses, and specifically breeding tigers for the purposes of being photographed as cubs with excited visitors.
The series elaborately spirals from there, with directors Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin investigating the feud over the course of five years. Along the way, the pair encountered a wild industry of private big cat ownership in the USA, at least one murder-for-hire, a cult revolving around exotic animals, and allegations of a millionaire being fed to tigers.
While there is currently no network or streamer attached to the McKinnon-fronted show, which has been scripted by EP, the release of Tiger King is likely to raise its profile.
