If you can’t get enough of Joe Exotic, do not worry. There’s more to come! ID channel is releasing JOE EXOTIC: TIGERS, LIES, and COVER-Up. Starting on September 27th, the feature will be followed by the prequel Joe Exotic saga, JOE EXOTIC: BEFORE HE WAS KING.


In Joe Exotic: Tigers, Lies, and Cover-Up, the special looks to find out what happened to Joe Exotic’s mortal enemy, Carol Baskin’s husband. The three-hour special will look into the evidence surrounding Don Lewis’s disappearance. The special features an exclusive jailhouse interview from Joe Exotic.

Retired homicide investigator Jim Rathmann will lead the investigation. Rathmann reveals new theories and relives Lewis’s final days. There will also be commentary by criminal and legal experts. Dillon Passage and members from “Team Tiger” (A group who is actively working to release Joe from jail) will also provide commentary.

In addition, the investigation will explore if Joe Exotic was always a predator. Joe Exotic: Tigers, Lies, and Cover-Up will begin with Parts 1 & 2 airing Sunday September 27th at 9/8c. It will conclude with Part 3 on Monday, September 28th at 9/8c on the ID Channel.

Henry Schleiff, the Group President of Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel, and Destination America; stated:

“The bizarre and troubling saga of Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin is, perhaps, one of the most convoluted mysteries ever revealed. In these two specials, ID will take viewers through the complete story and determine who should really be in the cage.”
