According to Variety, Investigation Discovery (ID) is greenlighting a new program billed as the “definitive sequel” to the docuseries.
The limited series called Investigating the Strange World of Joe Exotic will take a look at the life and “strange world of Joe Exotic” a.k.a Joseph Maldonado-Passage, and will also look in-depth at his arch-nemesis Carole Baskin.
Expected to premiere later this year, a press release from ID said that the new series would be the “investigation you didn’t get to see, revealing the secrets only Joe knows” and with exclusive footage “that has never been shown”.
Told from Maldonado Passage’s perspective — because as the Network says: “No one seems to be talking, except for one man,” — we can be sure to expect a lot more wild accusations from the former zoo owner.
More importantly for fans, the story will delve deeper into the case of Baskin’s missing husband, Don Lewis — looking to see if she really was responsible for his disappearance and now that Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister has asked for new leads in Lewis’ disappearance via Twitter on March 30, we can be sure to get some more details.
“Viewers are understandably riveted by Netflix’s ‘Tiger King,’ but the millions of true crime fans around the world were left wanting more,” Henry Schleiff, group president of ID, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel and Destination America said in a statement.
Exotic is now serving a 22-year prison sentence for paying a hitman $3,000 for the murder-for-hire plot to kill animal rights activist, Carole Baskin.
