‘Tiger King’ Star Jeff Lowe Is Getting His Own Spin-Off Show

‘Tiger King’ Star Jeff Lowe Is Getting His Own Spin-Off Show

Tiger King star Jeff Lowe has revealed he has his very own spin-off show in the works.

The new show will follow Jeff and his wife Lauren as they transfer their big cats from the Tiger King park to a new facility, after Carole Baskin was officially granted the land.

Plus, the couple have promised to spill plenty more tea on Joe Exotic, as they tell their side of the story in their own words.

"It'll be our narrative on the Tiger King with evidence to support our sides of the stories. And it will be about the transfer of all these beautiful animals from Joe's facility to the new facility," Jeff told People magazine.

"And then the day-to-day struggle of running something as big as a 60-acre animal park and all the intricacies of the employment of zookeepers and fighting all of the animal rights groups".

Jeff teased that he would also "divulge a lot more information about the relationship" he'd had with Joseph Maldonado-Passage - who is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence for plotting to have Baskin killed.

Jeff said it was too soon to give a precise date for production, as the series had only recently entered "pre-production".

"It's with the Content Groun in California, and it will prove to be very, very informative," he said.

While he wouldn't reveal which channel was airing the show, Jeff added that he was currently "filming B-roll" for the series, but conceded it was taking while due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

‘Tiger King’ Park Has Officially Reopened To The Public

Jeff is relocating his Tiger King Park to Thackerville Oklahoma, where he wants to begin with a fresh slate.

Joe Exotic was not happy when he found out about the relocation from jail.

Upon hearing that Carole Baskin had been awarded his zoo in a court hearing earlier this week, peroxide-haired big cat owner called the decision "treachery".

In a series of tweets, the former zoo keeper described the ruling as "yet another emotional blow" to his "already fragile" state.

Controversially, Exotic linked his statement to the tragic death of George Floyd on May 25th in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The tweet read: "While we again acknowledge it is truly time to pray for justice for George Floyd's family as well as an end to systemic racism in America, we must address Carol [sic] Baskin's treachery before it goes unchecked."

It's safe to say, he was rightly lambasted for making the correlation.
