Louis Theroux is to make his second documentary on Joe Exotic that tackles his ‘cult following’.
The British-American journalist and documentary filmmaker, 50, previously met Joe Exotic when working on BBC film America’s Most Dangerous Pets.
Exotic, full name Joseph Maldonado-Passage, rose to worldwide fame thanks to Netflix documentary Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness.
That series examined his rivalry with animal rights activist Carole Baskin and his subsequent attempt to have her killed by a hitman – which he was ultimately jailed for along with violating wildlife laws.
Now BBC Two has announced that Theroux will be making a new film focused on Exotic, with a working title of Louis Theroux: The Cult of Joe Exotic.
