Netflix has a ton of insane docs on their platform but their latest true-crime doc "Tiger King" might take the cake for being the wildest one yet. Based on the uber-dark true story of Joe Exotic, real name Joseph Maldonado-Passage, the documentary features seven episodes of absolute madness, ideal for spending the weekend snuggled up in front of the tele. Not only that, but he also ran a roadside zoo in Oklahoma - which is only the start of his epic downfall. The stranger-than-fiction story - which chronicles the criminal spiral of the former Oklahoma zookeeper (Maldonado-Passage) convicted of concocting a murder-for-hire plot to kill his rival animal-rights activist (Baskin) - is still in development, according to TVLine and now has no network or streaming platform attached yet.

The series follows Joe himself, Carole and a number of others familiar with the eccentric zookeeper as they all tell their version of events, all leading up to Joe's highly publicised downward spiral.

"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 unsafe menagerie garner".

Back in November, Universal Content Productions announced that an adaptation of the Wondery podcast Joe Exotic was in the works with the Saturday Night Live star, 36, portraying Joseph Maldonado-Passage's nemesis, Carole Baskin, according to Variety.

Exotic, who ran for United States president in 2016 and once had his own line of condoms called Tiger King, is now serving a 22-year sentence.
