NBC has ordered a series based on Carole Baskin that will air on NBC, USA Network, and its streaming platform – Peacock. Currently, the series is labeled as Joe Exotic, but that can easily be touted as a work-in-progress name.
The series is set to feature Kate McKinnon as the lead role as well as executive produce alongside Marshall Lewy, Hernan Lopez, Aaron Hart, and Etan Frankel. Frankel will also pull double-duty as the series writer as part of his deal with Universal Content Productions.
