A limited series about the very popular Joe Exotic mess is coming to Peacock. Haven’t we all had enough? Guess not? Good cast tho.
Kate McKinnon from SNL will be playing Carole Baskin and Dean Winters (Law & Order and he plays Mahem in the Allstate commercials) will play Joe exotic’s lover turned enemy, Jeff Lowe.
In addition to McKinnon and Mitchell, Winters also joins previously cast Dennis Quaid as Rick Kirkham, Brian Van Holt as John Reinke, Nat Wolff as Travis Maldonado, Sam Keeley as John Finlay, and Lex Mayson as Saff.
The limited series centers on Carole Baskin (McKinnon), a big cat enthusiast, who learns that fellow exotic animal lover Joe “Exotic” Schreibvogel (Mitchell) is breeding and using his big cats for profit. She sets out to shut down his venture, inciting a quickly escalating rivalry. But Carole has a checkered past of her own and when the claws come out, Joe will stop at nothing to expose what he sees as her hypocrisy. The results prove dangerous.
