All you Tiger King lovers are going to be thrilled! JOE VS CAROLE stars John Cameron Mitchell and Kate McKinnon as Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin.
JOE vs CAROLE is a wild ride. It’s a fun and rich journey into the story of people who live very extreme lives. When I took on this project a year and a half ago, I found Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin to be utterly fascinating, and this crazy tale about two big cat lovers quickly became an important story for me to tell. I hope that when people watch JOE vs CAROLE just maybe they’ll see these people that they thought they knew in a brand-new way. We knew it would take two extraordinary actors to portray these larger-than-life people as the complex, three-dimensional individuals that they are. John Cameron Mitchell is one of the most gifted and thoughtful actors I’ve ever worked with. He cares so deeply about the work, and his performance is breathtaking. And Kate McKinnon is simply remarkable. She is able to make us double over with laughter one moment and then break our hearts the next. It was an absolute thrill to watch these two exceptional actors morph into these roles.” The series stars John Cameron Mitchell as Joe “Exotic” Schreibvogel, Kate McKinnon as Carole Baskin, Kyle MacLachlan as Howard Baskin, Brian Van Holt as John Reinke, Sam Keeley as John Finlay, Nat Wolff as Travis Maldonado, Marlo Kelly as Jamie Murdock, William Fichtner as Rick Kirkham, Dean Winters as Jeff Lowe, and David Wenham as Don Lewis.
JOE VS CAROLE premieres Wednesday, March 9, 2022 at 9 p.m. ET only on Showcase and will be available to stream live and on demand with STACKTV and the Global TV App.
