Created by Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin, Tiger King centres on Joe Exotic, a zoo owner, and turns into in a true murder-for-hire story from the underworld of big cat breeding.

The series spawned an ‘aftershow’ which saw Joel McHale talk with Jeff Lowe, Saff, Erik Cowie and more to get their reactions to the series, their portrayals and their new-found fame.

The show has also sparked a huge amount of further interest, including an NBC drama series adaptation which is set to star John Cameron Mitchell as Exotic and Kate McKinnon as Big Cat Rescue’s Carole Baskin.

Meanwhile, a few months ago Exotic – who is currently serving a 22 year prison sentence after being convicted on 17 charges of animal abuse and two counts of attempted murder for hire relating to Baskin in 2019 – confirmed that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

“John Phillips (Exotic’s lawyer) has received my medical records from FMC Fort Worth and my PSA count came back very high for prostate cancer,” he tweeted. “The prison has approved testing to verify what stage it is in. My body is tired, I have lost a tremendous amount of weight, the mouth sores are out of control, I throw up more than I eat.”

Netflix is yet to update viewers on the show’s developments and release dates.

Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness is available to stream now on Netflix.
