John Cameron Mitchell stars in Joe vs Carole
Ever since the original Tiger King series dropped Joe Exotic has been making headlines around the world.
With several follow up documentaries released since, Joe vs Carole will be the first scripted series to air.
Joe Vs Carole will premiere on Stan on March 4th in Australia.
Based on the 2020 Wondery podcast Joe Exotic: Tiger King the show will follow the feud between Tiger King Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin.
Filmed in Queensland the program will also star Kate McKinnon as Carole Baskin and Kyle MacLachlan as Howard Baskin.
“The story you know, was only half the tale” narrates the trailer.
Interspersed with footage of an incredibly convincing Joe and Carole by Mitchelle & McKinnon the trailer looks set to draw viewers in for more of this story.
If you thought the Tiger King story was over, think again.
“It was an absolute thrill to watch these two exceptional actors morph into these roles.“
Etan Frankel is Showrunner, Writer, and Executive Producer for the new Tiger King Series and he’s very excited.
“JOE vs CAROLE is a wild ride. We knew it would take two extraordinary actors to portray these larger-than-life people as the complex, three-dimensional individuals that they are.”
Speaking of the stars of the show he’s confident the program is going to deliver a compelling watch.
“John Cameron Mitchell is one of the most gifted and thoughtful actors I’ve ever worked with.”
“He cares so deeply about the work, and his performance is breathtaking.”
But it’s not just Mitchell who will steal the show, McKinnon is also a force to be reckoned with.
“Kate McKinnon is simply remarkable. She is able to make us double over with laughter one moment and then break our hearts the next.”
“It was an absolute thrill to watch these two exceptional actors morph into these roles.”
Joe Vs Carole will premiere on Stan on March 4th, same day as the US.
