Following the huge success of Netflix’s Tiger King, multiple off-shoots have been announced. One of these will star Nicolas Cage as Joe Exotic, and now the series has found a distribution partner.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amazon has won the rights to host the show, which will be produced by GameSpot sister company CBS Television Studios.
The series, which is only an idea at this stage and is not confirmed to be produced, is based on the 2019 Texas Monthly feature on Joe Exotic AKA Joe Schreibvogel. The story covered the controversies of his life involving the Oklahoma zoo and his spats with Carole Baskin and Jeff Lowe. This drama was also the thrust of the Netflix series.
