Kate McKinnon is purr-fect as Carole Baskin in ‘Joe vs Carole’ first look
In the series “Joe vs. Carole,” out March 3, John Cameron Mitchell and Kate McKinnon play the dueling huge feline supporters (cat-vocates?).
According to Peacock, the drama “takes a comprehensive dive into the lives” of the set, focusing mainly on Baskin. It’s based upon the Wondery podcast “Joe Exotic,” hosted and reported by Robert Moor.
The story gets simply as Baskin “learns that fellow exotic animal lover Joe ‘Exotic’ Schreibvogel is breeding and using his big cats for profit.”
“She sets out to shut down his venture, inciting a quickly escalating rivalry,” a logline states. “But Carole has a checkered past of her own and when the claws come out, Joe will stop at nothing to expose what he sees as her hypocrisy. The results prove dangerous.”
Etan Frankel, whose credits consist of episodes of “Shameless,” composed and executive produced. McKinnon likewise executive produced.
“We knew it would take two extraordinary actors to portray these larger-than-life people as the complex, three-dimensional individuals that they are,” he stated in a declaration.
The series will include 8 episodes.
