Filmed in Queensland, JOE vs CAROLE is a scripted adaptation of the 2020 Wondery podcast Joe Exotic: Tiger King, hosted and reported by Robert Moor. Alongside Etan Frankel, Kate McKinnon will also executive produce along with Alex Katsnelson and Wondery’s Hernan Lopez, Marshall Lewy, and Aaron Hart. Joe vs Carole is produced by UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group.
Showrunner, Writer, and Executive Producer Etan Frankel said: “JOE vs CAROLE is a wild ride. We knew it would take two extraordinary actors to portray these larger-than-life people as the complex, three-dimensional individuals that they are. 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.”
JOE vs CAROLE premieres 4 March, same day as the U.S. and only on Stan.
