JOE vs CAROLE is a wild ride. It’s a fun and rich journey into the story of people who live very extreme lives. When I took on this project a year and a half ago, I found Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin to be utterly fascinating, and this crazy tale about two big cat lovers quickly became an important story for me to tell, “said series showrunner / writer / executive producer Etan Frankel in a statement. “I hope that when people watch JOE vs CAROLE just maybe they’ll see these people that they thought they knew in a brand-new way. “


JOE vs CAROLE is a limited drama series that will consist of eight, hour-long episodes. Executive producers include Kate McKinnon, who stars as Carole Baskin, along with Alex Katsnelson and Wondery’s Hernan Lopez, Marshall Lewy and Aaron Hart. With McKinnon and Mitchell as the titular series leads, they are joined by cast members Kyle MacLachlan as Carole’s husband, Brian Van Holt, Sam Keeley, Nat Wolf, Marlo Kelly, William Fichtner, Dean Winters and David Wenham. It was announced the series would be a Peacock exclusive in May 2021.

“We knew it would take two extraordinary actors to portray these larger-than-life people as the complex, three-dimensional individuals that they are,” Frankel continued. “John Cameron Mitchell is one of the most gifted and thoughtful actors I’ve ever worked with. He cares so deeply about the work, and his performance is breathtaking. And Kate McKinnon is simply remarkable. She is able to make us double over with laughter one moment and then break our hearts the next. It was an absolute thrill to watch these two exceptional actors morph into these roles. “

Justin Tipping will serve as the director for the series finale, as well as Episodes 1-4, while Natalie Bailey will direct Episodes 5-7.
