We love the Netflix documentary series of Tiger King so much that now have some announcements that a series will be happening and starring Nicolas Cage.
Variety learned exclusively yesterday that there will be an eight episode series which will be produced by Imagine Television Studios alongside CBS. In the coming days the series will be taken to market and will be based on the Texas Monthly article “Joe Exotic: A Dark Journey Into the World of a Man Gone Wild,” by Leif Reigstad.
Dan Lagana has been appointed as writer, showrunner and executive producer. Brian Grazer and Samie Kim Falvey will also be executive producers and Cage himself will executive produce via Saturn Films.
This will be the first regular television role of Nicolas Cage’s career. Are you excited for the series? Do you need more Tiger King in your life? Let us know on Twitter or Comment below!
