Exotic’s nemesis, Carole Baskin, has also cashed in on her fame and/or notoriety in the wake of the show: while she’s currently a contestant on Dancing With the Stars (performing to “Eye of the Tiger”, ofc), the big cat activist has also used her platform to boost protests against animal exploitation, including the use of lions and tigers as props in Cardi B’s “WAP” video.
Now, Baskin is also set to join her current husband, Howard Baskin, in a new show developed by ITV America’s Thinkfactory Media, which will see them “work to expose, like never before, those who abuse and take advantage of various animals”.
“This is a chance for us to use our new platform to battle the everyday evils facing big cats and so many other animals,” say the Baskins, in a statement shared byVariety. “This show will help us further our life’s mission,” they add, “while bringing important stories and information to ‘cool cats and kittens’ across the country.”
Currently untitled, the show is still in the development phase, and will soon be pitched to broadcast and streaming platforms looking to capitalise on the Tiger King hype.
