Kate McKinnon Will Be Playing Carole Baskin in Scripted 'Tiger King' TV Show!

Kate McKinnon is set to take on Tiger King, Netflix’s brand new documentary series that everyone is talking about.

TV Line

The project, which has been in development at Universal Content Productions since last year, is set to be based on the Joe Exotic podcast and much like the documentary, it’s set to “follow big cat enthusiast Carole Baskin (McKinnon), who learns that fellow exotic animal lover Joe ‘Exotic’ Schreibvogel is breeding big cats for profit. After Carole sets out to shut Joe down, he stops at nothing to expose her hypocrisy, with results that prove deadly.”

No network is attached yet.

It was recently revealed that Carole Baskin is not a big fan of Netflix’s Tiger King at all – Find out why HERE!
