Your First Look at John Cameron Mitchell and Kate McKinnon as Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin

A premiere date has been announced for ‘Joe vs. Carole.’

Nearly two years after Tiger King premiered on Netflix, fans are getting a Peacock series about Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin, starring John Cameron Mitchell and Kate McKinnon.

The forthcoming TV show, which was originally titled Joe Exotic, is now called Joe vs. Carole, and it focuses on the reality stars’ interesting dynamic.

“Joe vs. Carole is a wild ride,” showrunner Etan Frankel said. “It’s a fun and rich journey into the story of people who live very extreme lives. When I took on this project a year and a half ago, I found Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin to be utterly fascinating, and this crazy tale about two big cat lovers quickly became an important story for me to tell. I hope that when people watch Joe vs. Carole, just maybe they’ll see these people that they thought they knew in a brand new way.”

Frankel expressed why McKinnon and Mitchell are ideal for these roles. “We knew it would take two extraordinary actors to portray these larger-than-life people as the complex, three-dimensional individuals that they are,” he explained. “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. And 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.”

Watch the first teaser above.  Joe vs. Carole streams on Peacock on March 3.
