“My husband and I look forward to seeing Kate McKinnon and Kyle McLaughlan’s portrayal of us, even though we expect it will be a parody based on the trailer. Both are talented actors and I expect Joe vs Carole will be a lot more entertaining than the situation was in real life,” she told the outlet.

Based on Wondery’s Joe Exotic podcast, the new series charts the tenuous relationship between the two big cat owners, following Carole after she learns Joe is breeding the animals for profit.

Carole continued, “As with Netflix’s Tiger King, Murder, Mayhem and Madness and Wondery’s Joe Exotic, Over My Dead Body and all of the other spinoffs, none of these programmes created for entertainment value really get at the main issues of big cat and cub abuse and the imminent extinction of big cats due to cub petting, like we do in Discovery+ Carole Baskin’s Cage Fight.”

“My fear is that in the next five years, while people are morbidly obsessed the plight of my former husband, Don Lewis, we will have reached the point of no return for the planet by failing to safeguard the world’s most iconic species,” she concluded.

Joe vs. Carole is set to start streaming March 3 on Peacock.
