Set photos from the upcoming Peacock series titled Joe Exotic reveal the first look at Kate McKinnon as Carole Baskin in costume. Joe Exotic will be a dramatized retelling of the events that occurred in Netflix’s mega-hit docuseries Tiger King, which kept millions of subscribers hooked till the end. Peacock is hoping to hit gold with Joe Exotic as the craze of the Netflix series Tiger King has not slowed down, and the second season of the docuseries is about to hit the streaming giant in November.
One of the main characters in the upcoming Peacock series is Carole Baskin, the founder of Big Cat Rescue just like in the Tiger King. The series will follow her rival, Joe Exotic, who was arrested on suspicion of hiring two men to murder Baskin. But the already complicated case got more complicated as some evidence was found that suggested that Baskin may have murdered her husband.
The unofficial set photo was posted by McKinnon’s Instagram fan page nothingbutmckinnon, showing the SNL star in full costume and looking so much like Baskin.
Joe Exotic is being written and produced by Etan Frankel, and aside from McKinnon, it will also star John Cameron Mitchell as Joe Exotic, Nat Wolff, Brian Van Holt, Sam Keeley, Kyle MacLachlan, Lex Mayson, and William Fichtner. No release date for the series has been announced yet. Check out the photo below:
