Deadline Hollywood reports:
Back in November, UCP announced Joe Exotic, a limited series starring and executive produced by Kate McKinnon. Four and a half months later, interest in the project, based on Joe Exotic, the second season of Wondery’s Over My Dead Body podcast, is skyrocketing because of the massive popularity of the Netflix docuseries Tiger King, about the real-life characters depicted in the Joe Exotic limited series.
The limited series, which McKinnon executive produces with Wondery’s Hernan Lopez and Marshall Lewy, is still in internal development at UCP and has not been set up at a network or a streaming platform. When it is taken out, there will be no lack of potential suitors, with Netflix possibly among those interested in the limited series because of its kinship with Tiger King.
