BBC’s head of commissioning, documentaries, history, and religion, Clare Sillery, mentioned that this feature-length special documentary will be filled with never-before-seen footage and new interviews with those who are part of Joe Exotic’s life, from those who both love him and hate him. In addition to the new documentary about Exotic, several fictional projects are in the works, including a drama series for Amazon starring Nicolas Cage, and an NBC series that sees Kate McKinnon playing Carole Baskin.
Tiger King turned Exotic into a social media phenomenon rather than an outcast. After the Netflix series became a hit, viewers clamored for more information about Exotic. The resulting media attention seemingly covered every aspect of Exotic’s life and scandals. Theroux’s history with Exotic makes him the perfect fit to carry out a documentary like Louis Theroux: The Cult of Joe Exotic, but it’s going to be a challenge to bring viewers new and exclusive details instead of just repeating what fans already know.
