Netflix’s Tiger King documentary, really hit all the marks. It became very popular and people from all over the world couldn’t stop talking about it. Soon after that, Hollywood wanted to take on a new approach to Joe Exotic. They had to do it because fans are clearly loving it. This time it will be a scripted series and with Cage, a whole lotta fun.
Why Nicolas Cage?
Well, if you think about it, he was the perfect choice. Nick Cage is famous for his roles which can be put into three categories, Weird, Balanced and Perfect. Now that he will be Joe Exotic, Cage was the perfect choice. However, the name of the show is not public right now because maybe there is no name.
One more great piece of news, it is his first role on Television. That’s actually pretty awesome. Nick is the perfect guy for this series. However, we will just have to see how it all pans out.
About the show
Firstly, it will be a full-fledged show and not a documentary as seen on Netflix. Besides this, it will have a total of eight episodes. It is being produced by CBS and also, Imagine Television Studios. The showrunners are yet to announce about the streaming service or the network, the new series will premiere on.
This upcoming series will be different from Netflix’s documentary. It will be a new approach. By the way, Kate McKinnon is playing Carole Baskin on another Tiger King tv series.
