Directors Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin told the story of “Joe Exotic,” or Joseph Maldonado-Passage, who kept tigers, lions and other big cats in Oklahoma. The docuseries explored a murder-for-hire plot against Carole Baskin, a woman who ran a facility called Big Cat Rescue and had lobbied to shut down facilities like the one Maldonado-Passage managed.
Baskin was able to finance her battle through the fortune she inherited from her late husband, who disappeared under mysterious circumstances.
