Imagine Television Studios and CBS Television Studios have announced that they will be producing an eight-episode series focusing on the life of Tiger King‘s Joe Exotic. According to VarietyNicolas Cage will be playing Exotic in the upcoming scripted TV show.

Just like the original Netflix documentary series, the scripted show will be based on Leif Reigstad’s Texas Monthly article “Joe Exotic: A Dark Journey Into the World of a Man Gone Wild.” Additionally, it will follow the story of the zookeeper and “how he lost himself to a character of his own creation.” Reports state that American Vandal‘s showrunner Dan Lagana will serve as the series’ writer, showrunner and executive producer.
