Netflix docuseries “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness” has been a smash hit since its arrival last month and has been a constant source of memes. Now Netflix has announced that they are adding a brand new episode, an ‘after-show’ if you will, called “The Tiger King and I” which will be hosted by Joel McHale and launch on Easter Sunday, April 12th. You can see the announcement video below where he explains that he spoke to a number of people involved in the story and how the series has affected them since it launched. He also clarifies that it will be funny!
The series is, in a nutshell, about big cat owners in the US, murder for hire, polygamy, country music and politics. Similar to “Fyre” and “Abducted in Plain Sight” it is likely to leave you asking “wait, what?!” You can see the trailer below.
Among the eccentrics and cult personalities in the stranger-than-fiction world of big cat owners, few stand out more than Joe Exotic, a mulleted, gun-toting polygamist and country western singer who presides over an Oklahoma roadside zoo. Charismatic but misguided, Joe and an unbelievable cast of characters including drug kingpins, conmen, and cult leaders all share a passion for big cats, and the status and attention their dangerous menageries garner. But things take a dark turn when Carole Baskin, an animal activist and owner of a big cat sanctuary, threatens to put them out of business, stoking a rivalry that eventually leads to Joe’s arrest for a murder-for-hire plot, and reveals a twisted tale where the only thing more dangerous than a big cat is its owner.
