 What is Tiger King? / Facts   

  • Co-directed by -  Rebecca Chaiklin and Eric Goode.
  • Release Date - 20 March 2020 (USA).
  • Also Known As - A Máfia dos Tigres.
  • Synopsis - A rivalry between big cat eccentrics takes a dark turn when Joe Exotic, a controversial animal park boss, is caught in a murder-for-hire plot.
  • Storyline - 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.
  • What happened to everyone involved in the real life events - The documentary series hones in on two major players, Joe “Exotic” Maldonado-Passage and Carole Baskin. 
    As reported by NBC News, Maldonado-Passage has been convicted of murder-for-hire and 17 federal wildlife charges, and was sentenced to 22 years in federal prison by the U.S. District Court for the Western District Court of Oklahoma.
    The breeder was convicted of attempting to hire a hitman (who turned out to be an undercover federal agent) and pay him $3000 to kill Baskin in 2017.
    When that attempt failed, Maldonado-Passage was recorded trying to hire another hitman (also an FBI agent), this time offering $10,000.
    At the time of his sentencing, Carole Baskin said that the ordeal left her traumatized and she admitted she sees “every bystander as a potential threat.” Baskin also pleaded with the court to consider how her family would feel if “this vicious, obsessed man is ever released from jail.” 
  • Where is Joe Exotic now - At the time of his indictment, he was being held at the Santa Rosa County Jail in Milton, Florida, but was later transferred to Oklahoma for his sentencing.
    According to records on the Federal Bureau of Prisons website, the 57-year-old is in the system, but his current location is not stated.
    However, once his processing is complete, his status and location will likely be updated.
