The streaming phenomenon

It’s safe to say that the Netflix documentary series Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness was a huge global phenomenon. Timed to absolute perfection in terms of viewership potential, the series was a rollercoaster of emotions as the story of Joe Exotic and the infamous G.W. Zoo was watched by millions of people around the world. Even though the Tiger King was binge watched by most of us in March, our obsession over Joe Exotic has only increased since then.

Let's be honest, a dramatised version of Joe Exotic's life was always on the cards. So it came as no surprise to anyone that an eight-episode television series has been given the green light to be produced for release next year. Though nothing concrete is known at this point in time, the series is rumoured to be headed by an all star cast of Hollywood elites–so watch this space! While we wait in anticipation for the release of this new series, it is comforting to know that there is more content out there featuring the Tiger King and his empire.

A prequel to the Tiger King

It may come as a surprise to some to learn that Joe Exotic was in the global spotlight close to a decade earlier thanks to a BBC documentary. Predating the Joe Exotic phenomenon was America's Most Dangerous Pets by the British documentary filmmaker and journalist Louis Theroux. Released in 2010 by the BBC, this was the world’s first true introduction to Joe Exotic. In America's Most Dangerous Pets, Louis travels to America's heartland to meet the owners of animals one would normally expect to find in the wild. It’s a fascinating insight into the world of animal rescue and exotic pet ownership in the United States.

The issues that were prevalent in the Netflix series are all present in America's Most Dangerous Pets. The question of whether a wild animal can truly be happy with a life in captivity is what Louis brings to the forefront as he becomes close with Joe and learns more of the details of his operation. Louis Theroux’s America's Most Dangerous Pets acts as an important prequel to the Tiger King and should be considered as required viewing by fans of the Netflix series.
