The show kicked off by reflecting on one of the weirder years in the show’s history, which returned to production with strict safety measures in place due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But before Tiger King there was Joe Exotic, a Wondery podcast that covered the same story last year and quickly got picked up for a TV series adaptation. In November 2019, it was reported that Kate McKinnon was set to star in the series as Carole Baskin, the owner of Big Cat Rescue and the mortal enemy of Joe Exotic.
