According to Nielsen, the Netflix docuseries reached 34.3 million unique viewers within the first 10 days of its release in late March, Variety learned exclusively, making it one of the streamer’s biggest-ever original programs. The seven-episode limited series premiered on March 20, coinciding with the mounting coronavirus pandemic that has since resulted in millions of Americans sheltering in place at home in order to prevent the further spread of the disease. ‘Tiger King’ centers on private zoo owner Joe Exotic, his facility that holds hundreds of rare and exotic animals, a rivalry with Big Cat Rescue owner Carole Baskin and a murder-for-hire plot.
Fox is not the only network trying to wring more out of the public taste for the series. Investigation Discovery has greenlit a show that it is calling the “definitive sequel” to “Tiger King,” focusing on “the investigation you didn’t get to see, revealing the secrets only Joe knows, the exclusive footage that has never been shown and the search to answer the one question every person in America is asking themselves right now: although she’s denied it, is Carole Baskin responsible for the disappearance of her husband, Don Lewis?”
