Louis Theroux

Coming up: Louis Theroux meets Carole Baskin


Louis Theroux, the filmmaker, will go face-to-face with Carole Baskin, owner of Big Cat Rescue. This is the news that all Louis Theroux fans have been waiting for – but what about all those Carole Baskin fans?

Theroux is a BBC legend, 50. He has already spoken to an enemy of Carole: Tiger King Joe Exotic. That was 10 years ago, for his BBC series “America’s Most Dangerous Pets”.

For his new documentary “Louis Theroux: Shooting Joe Exotic” he has managed to get an elusive chat with Carole. Baskin is well respected within the world of animal lovers. Why? Because of her work and passion to create better conditions for captive tigers in the USA.

The documentary will follow on from Netflix’s Tiger King. It covers what’s happened since Joe went to jail. That was back in 2019 – for plotting to kill Carole.

His company Mindhouse Production tweeted: “At last! @louistheroux finally meets @carole_baskin, a decade since first filming with Joe Exotic.”
