Netflix has launched the first trailer for its twisted big cat documentary ‘Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness.
Among the eccentrics and cult personalities in the stranger-than-fiction world of big cat owners, few stand out more than Joe Exotic, a mulleted, gun-toting polygamist and a country-western singer who presides over an Oklahoma roadside zoo. Charismatic but misguided, Joe and an unbelievable cast of characters including drug kingpins, conmen, and cult leaders all share a passion for big cats, and the status and attention their dangerous menageries garner. But things take a dark turn when Carole Baskin, an animal activist and owner of a big cat sanctuary, threatens to put them out of business, stoking a rivalry that eventually leads to Joe’s arrest for a murder-for-hire plot and reveals a twisted tale where the only thing more dangerous than a big cat is its owner.
Directed by Eric Goode and Rebecca Chailkin; Executive Produced by Chris Smith (Fyre, Jim & Andy) and Fisher Stevens (Before the Flood, Bright Lights).
The documentary launches on Netflix March 20th
