Tiger King-inspired drama Joe vs Carole will roar onto UK screens on March 4.

We all know this stranger than fiction story by now: zookeeper Joe Exotic and Big Cat Rescue boss Carole Baskin's rivalry in the American South takes a sinister turn when the former gets convicted of murder-for-hire.

The Good Fight actor John Cameron Mitchell, Saturday Night Live regular Kate McKinnon and Twin Peaks legend Kyle MacLachlan headline the cast.

Scrolling to the top of this article will take you to the limited series' first trailer too, teasing a brewing war between the two tiger worshippers amongst some more eccentric scenes.

Despite their apparent feud dominating the news headlines back in 2020, thanks to the immense popularity of Netflix's Tiger King, Baskin herself has assured the public that she's never once shared a conversation with Exotic.

"Joe and I never had a conversation... we still have never had a conversation. So if they were selling the idea of it being this big feud, they had plenty of Joe trash-talking me, but they couldn't get me to trash-talk him.

"And every time the producers would try, I kept going back to, you know, 'He's just one of these people who's abusing animals, this is a whole industry and there's a bigger picture,'" she told the Loose Women.

"I never say anything nasty about him personally. I never did on social media or emails or in any way."

Joe vs Carole heads to Peacock on Friday, March 4, exclusively on Sky and NOW. Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness is streaming on Netflix.
