Nicolas Cage's Joe Exotic Drama Headed to Amazon Prime

September 12, 2020

Nobody's cagier or shiftier than Tiger King star Joe Exotic, which is why it's perfect that Exotic will be played by shape-shifting actor Nicolas Cage in an upcoming TV series that just landed at Amazon Prime. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series will be based on the original 2019 Texas Monthly story about Joe Schreibvogel, a.k.a. Joe Exotic, who built a private zoo in Oklahoma and has been accused of trying to organize a hit against his arch nemesis, Carole Baskin. Amazon's version will focus on how Schreibvogel became Joe Exotic. The news comes less than a month after another series starring SNL's Kate McKinnon as Baskin landed at NBC.
